Tenpaku Valley (天伯峡)

Other Sightseeing Spot

A 10-minute walk from Shimodaira Station on the JR Iida Line. From mid- through late June each year, visitors can see large numbers of Genji and Heike fireflies, and many know the valley as a top destination for firefly viewing. Fireflies require pure water to grow, and the area where their larvae live is also used to raise freshwater snails which serve as their food. A firefly festival is also held during the season. On the day of the festival, firefly watching events, elementary school student drum performances, a bazaar, and other events are held.

          Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
