Kugayama Firefly Festival
Jun 9, 2018 at 1:00 pm - Jun 10, 2018 at 9:00 pmFree
Viewing the night lit up by dancing lights is a Japanese summer must. Luckily, you don’t have to go far; the Kugayama Firefly Festival is just a 15 minute train ride away from Shibuya. The festival itself is a small, local event but over the span of two days, approximately 2000 captive-bred lighting bugs will be released. The best time to see them is around 8pm when they’re most active so enjoy the festival lineup until then.
