The season with the early summer feature "Firefly" dancing. Aso ・ From the basics of Minamiogoku to burial place! 3 recommended firefly watching spots.

Hello! It is Koji of SMO south small country editor in chief!

Even though it is still 5 month, the days are still hot enough to make you think it is summer. .

Good news for everyone who is nod like that heat! !

This time, in Minamioguni Town, an early summer tradition "fire Fly"" Began to dance \ (^ ^) /

This year, as usual, has begun to dance from the end of the month in 5, and I think it will be in full bloom until the beginning of 7.

If you are planning to stay at a Ryokan in Minamioguni-cho, or if you want to enjoy a romantic, adult-like date that seems to be Japanese like a firefly watching at night when the temperature drops, you must see ♪

If it is beautiful Minami-Okokuchi-cho of water! We introduce three choices from the standard spot recommended for firefly viewing to the fun spots!

■ Yatsuda area

Yatsuda (Yatsuda) area along the Shikase River, which is also the center of town.

It is recommended that you park your car at the Minami-Okunimachi Town Hall or the Product Center Kiyorakaasa of Akamaru when you are watching it while walking leisurely!

The area where you can often see the fireflies is from the Route XNUM X along the way to one. If you come from Aso, turn right when you see this temple!

The flat road is straight, so it's perfect for a walk!

The riverside around here is the recommended area!

If you park your car at Kyola Kaasa or Minami-Okunimachi Town Hall and make a round-trip, I think you can enjoy enough if you have an hour.

As it is relatively in town, it is a staple spot that you can drop in to feel free! Please stop by by all means on your way home

■ Tanohara area

A hot spring resort next to Kurokawa Onsen. Opened in the Kamakura period and flourished as a hot spring in the Edo period, it is now a small hot spring area Tanoharu area with 4 ryokans.

In fact, it is a popular spot so that the firefly watching tour takes place every year!

Turn left when you can see the bus stop of "Bypass field" along National Route XNUM X with a thatched roof!

As you go a little further from there, a small side road extends to the left hand side, so it turns sharply!

It is beautiful only scenery of Hara of the field and rice field. If a firefly dances here, it will be more tempting to look at it.

By the way, if you stay at "Ryokan Yunosaku" in Tanohara, it seems that the owner of the inn will do a special tour (* ^ ^ *)

When staying at Tanohara Onsen, please take a walk by all means ♪

■ Manganji Temple area

Manganji Temple area famous for having Japan's most embarrassing outdoor bath "Kawayu".

About XNUM minutes by car from the center of Minamioguni-cho. In addition, go straight on the Sanjuji Road with "Mangain Bus Stop" along the prefectural road XNUM X which has a distinctive thatched roof!

As parking lot of red circle of map has big signboard, it is easy to understand!

From the previous parking lot, walk 1 minutes to the area where the fireflies often come out! This place is surprising spot!

A space where you can hear only the noise of the river, the noise of insects and the wind swaying trees when you listen.
If you can see the fireflies there, you will be healed just by imagination. Lol

However! Please do not stop by imagination, but come and feel it by all means \ (^ ^) /

■ Conclusion


The area introduced this time is just the area where general residents live in everywhere.

The fireflies are also amazing when watching, so please be quiet and enjoy the night like Japan.

In addition, there are few streetlights, and there are many places where there are no guard rails between the river and the road, so it is recommended that you bring a small light etc. that illuminates your feet!

We look forward to your coming \ (^ ^) /
