The firefly viewing event in Chichibu Muse Park is very popular, attracting people from near and far. Moreover, it is a free event. It is held annually on a date in either late June or early July. The date depends on the life cycle of the fireflies in a given year. They allow up to 500 participants to partake in the firefly event. Moreover, the park attendants not only show you to an area where you can view fireflies, but they also offer some information about the life of fireflies.

The 2021 firefly viewing event has been scheduled for Saturday July 3rd.
