Yesterday, Saturday, March 16, firefly larvae were released in the Hatsukawa River in Atami Ume Plum Garden. Every year, the children of Baien Town helped us! It is said that there are about 50 types of fireflies in Japan. Representative of Japan is the firefly "Genji Firefly" that is released in Atami, and the hatched larvae are fed Kawanina about once a month to raise them, and the terminal larvae that have reached 2~3 centimeters are released. These larvae come ashore from the river at night when the humidity is high from mid to late April and burrow into the soil, creating an oval-shaped "earthen cocoon". After that, it becomes a snail in the "earthen cocoon", and in late May - early June it becomes an adult insect. This year, we will hold a "Firefly Viewing Evening" from 6/1 (Sat) ~ 9 (Sun). Please take a look at the pale light of fireflies that can only be seen at this time of year.
