Jul. Night

The "himebotaru" (princess firefly) is called the "kinbotaru" (golden firefly)" because of its golden glow. Although this species is rare, they are known for gathering around Tenno Hachiman shrine, shining their golden light in the evening. The sight of their thousands of lights dancing in lively joy is breathtaking.
