Night Forest Watching – Let’s look for creatures active during night around Akakokko-kan!

Aug. 10 (Sat) and Aug. 17 (Sat)
around Akakokko-kan

Night forest watching is a popular summer event in Miyakejima. You can encounter various creatures different from daytime during the night. When you listen carefully, you can hear the katydid (Hexacentrus japonicus) singing “zuiccho….zuiccho….” and you may also encounter the Neohirasea on the leaves, and perhaps the adult emergence of the cicada!
Would you like to come and take a look into the night forest of Miyakejima?
