2. Mount Hydrangea

The story of Mr. Minamisawa, known as the "Flower Blooming Grandpa of Nishitama", began with a desire to
"make the place where his ancestors are buried more colorful". It took about 50 years of repeated grafting,
rather than planting, to create the Hydrangea Mountain, which now has more than 10,000 plants and attracts 
more than 10,000 visitors yearly to this beautiful mountain. The beautiful scenery of the satoyama is breathtaking, and visitors can fully enjoy the rain-colored 'hydrangeas'.

4. Firefly Viewing

Fireflies are gradually becoming less common in Japan but can still be seen in Nishitama, Tokyo.
Fireflies, also known as lightning bugs, can still be seen in Nishitama, Tokyo, but only when clean water and food (mites) are available.

*Please note that you might not be watching fireflies due to bad weather or any other conditions.
