Because of our continuous efforts to develop a waterfront environment in Hasanbetsu Satoyama of Kuriyama in Southern Sorachi, the number of fireflies has increased and their habitat has expanded. Let’s go and find fireflies as they give out subtle lights along a summer stream.

Tour Dates

Tours are held every day from Monday, July 17, through Sunday August 13.*
*Please make a reservation at least three days before the date of the tour you wish to join. However, we ask for your understanding in advance; the period for holding the tours may be shortened if weather conditions or the growing conditions of fireflies are prohibitive.

Sample Itinerary

>3:00 pm Depart from Sapporo Park Hotel or Sapporo Grand Hotel in Sapporo City
>4:15 pm Enjoy a day hot spring bath (about an hour)

>7:30 pm Firefly observation at Hasanbetsu Satoyama (about an hour)

You can also use your time as you like before the firefly observation begins at 7:30 pm.
We can customize a tour plan based on your interests, needs, and time schedule. For example, you can leave Sapporo City early in the morning and enjoy a ride around Southern Sorachi to observe its history and culture from morning or afternoon until evening, and a gourmet lunch of soba noodles, pheasant, or Japanese cuisine at a washoku restaurant with a two-star (★★) Michelin rating.
