"Himehotaru" living in summer night forest, females cannot fly, only males, firefly which is an indigenous species of Japan, fly around the summer forest while repeating a blink of a short time, reminiscent of Christmas illumination. sight is fantastic enough to forget the awe of the night forest.It is the shine brightness of life of only 10 days in the summer. And forests are living things, and they are precious things that people cannot threaten. I just hope that this forest and fireflies will be protected.
