Hotaru no Sato
In the upper reaches of the Mamigasaki River, the mother river of Yamagata City, there is a district where the locals continue to protect the Genji fireflies that have long lived in the clear stream.
You can see the fantastic firefly dance in the summer night sky. Now, many people come from neighboring areas to enjoy the dance of fireflies.
