Enter an ethereal night filled with fireflies

Fireflies are hard to find in metropolitan Tokyo as they can only live around very clean bodies of water. In recent years, the city has made much effort to revive the population of fireflies by improving the natural environment. In Yokohama, Sankei-en Garden is a great place to see them. Check the website for the exact dates, as the viewing usually lasts for about a week in early June.

I like taking photographs on travels, but am oddly not good at the traveling bit itself. Please enjoy and view the photos as if it were you with your camera on your own travels.
