    • Natural illumination! Yaeyama Himebotaru Appreciation Tour>

      There are many rare animals in the Yaeyama Islands, and "Yaeyama Himebotaru" is one of them.

      The activity starts gradually at dusk, and by the time it gets dark, countless Yaeyama Himebotaru illuminate and dance in the forest. The scene is like natural illumination.

      Yaeyama Himebotaru is famous as the smallest firefly in Japan. The light is gentle but powerful and has attracted many people.

      Since Yaeyama Himebotaru is active only at dusk, there is only one hour of chance to meet each day. Let's take a peek into the fantastic world! !
