” Historical records state a huge number of fireflies were seen along the Tenryu river in the late 19 th through early 20 th century,” Mayor Yasuo Takei stated.
After World War II, the town worked hard to restore the environment and safeguard fireflies, and the bugs now bring in 10s of thousands of visitors during the annual summertime firefly celebration.
” When we have lots of fireflies, we get an incredible landscape full of lights, with both stars and glowing fireflies reflected in the water,” Takei stated.
