In Kaiyo Town, there is a Genji firefly village that is protected by people. Genji fireflies live only in clear streams and under limited conditions. In the haha river where the excellent environment remains, many colonies can be seen in June every year, and you can enjoy the fantastic beauty of summer nights.
