Fireflies in Yokohama2. Firefly Evening in Yokohama (Sankeien Garden) – Sankeien is a beautiful garden any time of the year, however, from this weekend until June 2nd the garden will stay open until late so visitors can see the Fireflies dancing around the garden and pond.

The garden management also asks that visitors do not use their flashes nor portable phones to create light since this will be a nuisance for other visitors.
