Please tell me a hotel around where I can see fire-flies

I live in Osaka. My son in the 2nd year of a primary school and wants to watch fire-flies. Please recommend a hotel near the spot where we can enjoy fire- flies in the Kansai area for less than \15,000 per person.

Takao sightseeing hotel

If you’ve been looking for an accommodation where you can enjoy the fire-flies watching, I recommend the Takao sightseeing hotel which is at the foot of Shingo Temple of Mt. Takao in the Kyoto city in the Kyoto prefecture which is not far from Osaka. The best season for fire-flies is June and July. You can enjoy the food with seasonal ingredients.

You can enjoy fire-flies.

The hotel is located in the suburbs of Kyoto. The mountainous scenery is brilliant and you can enjoy not only Genji fire-flies but also fishing in the river. The hotel has the sufficient facilities which are wonderful for a family. The food along the river is plentiful and there is no doubt that you can have a good memory of a summer holiday.

the fire-flies in June and July

If you go next year, this hotel is the best. They have a plan called, “Attention, please! ◎◎ the foods at river-side and the Maiko-san” and “delicious foods and looking for the cool” \15,000 is not enough, if you want Maiko-san to enjoy as well, but if you only want to enjoy fire-flies, you can stay in the standard room and go to the river to watch fireflies by yourself.

This hotel has a plan for the tour of watching fire-flies in June every year.

the hotel on the hillside where you can enjoy watching fire-flies and BBQ.

There is a free shuttle-bus from the hotel to the place to watch fire-flies. You can enjoy the buffet-styled meals with the local ingredients and BBQ. I could enjoy the Tajima-beef which is the famous product of the Hyogo prefecture and the seafood in a big bowl with rice to the full. You can relax in the open-air hot-spring with the breeze from the hill.

You can stay with your family.

This hotel has a plan for a family within your budget. The neighbouring city, Kinokawa has been enlivening the city economy by attracting tourists by increasing the number of fire-flies. They increased the moss which was the food for fire-flies, by keeping the river clean. So, nowadays a lot of fire-flies are inhabiting this area.

The location is perfect.

I recommend this hotel, as you can enjoy fire-flies in the International Exposition memorial park. You live in Osaka, but sometimes it is good to know the place which you haven’t been in Osaka. The charge is reasonable and it meets your budget.

watching fire-flies in front of the hotel

You can watch fire-flies near the river in front of the hotel. The staff of the hotel told me the best timing. It is located at a place full of nature in Hokusetsu in Osaka and you can enjoy the natural beauty from the open-air hot-spring. I stayed in the Japanese-styled room, but I stayed very comfortably, enjoying the beautiful nature through the window of my room. There is a game-corner and a souvenir-corner in the hotel.
