Every summer together with all the neighbourhood, my sister and I go to the satoyama park Kuraki-koen about 3 minutes away from my home to look at the fireflies.
Well, we caught a couple of fireflies with a shoe-box which we then let into this huge plastic bag so that we could look at them (the other one is still inside the shoebox I think).
The firefly up close but seen through the plastic bag.
Then we got it into my bug box and turned off the lights. You can see the firefly bottom’s flickering light here.
Then with this firefly fantasy lamp beside us, my sister and I went to bed dreaming of fireflies. It was one of the most exciting events ever!
Two great Japanese bug-tales to read are:
