The fireflies in Japan are beautiful, but are becoming a rarity. I went to a firefly festival in which there were about twenty people watching six fireflies. Kudos to the people who are working hard to improve their environment, especially the purity of the water, in order to bring them back.

There are many good locations in Nagano for viewing fireflies. I made several major paintings, one with the full moon.
