Iwamuro Onsen Hiyotsuma Fireflies岩室温泉冬妻ほたる

Other Sightseeing Spot

Iwamuro Onsen, also called Reigan no Yu, is one of the prefecture's leading firefly-watching spots. The fireflies seen here crowd around the clean, delicious waters of Iwamuro Onsen's Hiyotsuma spring, and so have come to be called Hiyotsuma fireflies. During the watching season, the area holds floating lamp ceremonies and outdoor concerts. Most years, the fireflies are best seeing from mid-June into July. On days when the humidity is high, you might be able to see a dancing cloud of lights around 20:00. One very nice feature is that on Saturdays during the season, there is a free shuttle bus between the tourist facility Iwamuroya and IwamuroKokaido public hall.

          Found along the northwestern coast of Japan, Niigata prefecture is celebrated for its high-quality rice and breathtaking nature, most notably its spectacular mountains, whose white peaks draw in snow sports lovers from far and wide over the winter months.
