Shibayama Firefly Festival

Shibayama Firefly Festival Shibayama Firefly Festival Shibayama Firefly Festival

On any given night in July, if you’re lucky you may see fireflies fluttering about in the fields of Shibayama near Narita Airport. But to both see fireflies and celebrate the summer together with the whole community, come to the Shibayama Firefly Festival. At this local matsuri held adjacent to the Museum of Aeronautical Sciences, there are stage performances such as taiko drumming and karaoke, Bon dances performed by different local groups, and classic Japanese festival fare such as yakisoba and kakigori shaved ice. The finale is the release of approximately 1,000 fireflies into the night sky, a surreal moment at the end of a fun day.
