What better way to round off a day in Hakuba than by padding a raft across scenic Lake Aoki-ko and see the shimmering effect of thousands of fireflies that come out to dance at night.

As the sun sets, you will get picked up from your accommodation. From there you get your life jacket on and board an inflatable canoe to paddle across lake Aoki-ko. Once on the water, the silence is deafening, with only the noise being the paddles in the water and the sounds of nature.

After cruising through a sea of fireflies, you’ll head back to the dock, and then head back to your accommodation.

Note. This tour is weather dependent, and as this tour focuses on a natural event, no guarantee is given.
