Fukumaki Firefly Country

Fukumaki Firefly Country: One of the leading scenic spots in the country.

In the town of Nichinan, there is a place called "Fukumaki," meaning "A myriad of fortunes will come." The name suggests that one may feel happiness just by visiting this place.
All of the fireflies in Fukumaki are wild fireflies. They may just bring you happiness if you catch sight of the approximately 20,000 Himebotaru fireflies, as well as the array of light from the Genji fireflies that live here, as they gracefully dance on the river. Please take a visit to Fukumaki Firefly Country, one of the leading scenic spots not only in Nichinan, but in the country.

Himebotaru fireflies fill the mountain surface, while Genji fireflies dancing elegantly in the sky produce a feast of sound.

Fukumaki is a rare firefly viewing site in Japan where both Himebotaru and Genji fireflies can be seen simultaneously and on a large scale.
Himebotaru are characterized by a light that flashes twice a second. The females remain on the ground, and the male flies 1-2 meters from the ground while emitting light.
Genji fireflies are characterized by a light emission time of a few seconds longer than that of the Himebotaru. Females stay on surfaces such as leaves, and males fly in the upper skies near the waterside while emitting light.
In Fukumaki, the Himebotaru and Genjibotaru viewing areas are located opposite each other, and the peak time for each type of firefly may overlap once every few years. It is no exaggeration to say that this overwhelming scale and beauty is unmatched in Japan.
