Congratulations!! Okinawan fireflies welcome you

When the sun sets and the beautiful magic hour is over, here comes the highlight-the time of the fireflies! Being able to see fireflies in the city is something special. Fireflies inhabiting this place are a rare type that can only be seen in Okinawa and the Amamishoto Islands.

· Be careful as pit-vipers inhabit the park!
· For safety, you need a flashlight, but be sure to paste a red cellophane on the light (otherwise it will scare the fireflies).
· Be sure to turn OFF the flash setting of the camera.
