(Mainichi)

Fireflies dance over a stream in the Kurokawa district of the city of Kawanishi, Hyogo Prefecture, on June 4, 2018. The Kurokawa mountain area has a reputation for its coexistence with the local community. According to the Kawanishi Municipal Government, the fireflies began lighting up from late May, about one week earlier than average due to the warm spring weather. Visitors can enjoy seeing the fireflies until around the middle of June. (Mainichi)
