There's a whole bunch of awesome reasons Japan, just checkout it's incredible cherry blossoms during spring, and because of this it deserves to be everyones list of places to visit and fireflies are possibly one of the most magical as each year during the summer season they transforms Japan's forests into illuminated landscapes that look like they're taken straight out of a fairytale movie.

The spectacle is so popular that there's even an entire theme park based around it as the tiny bugs light up the forest with the their glowing yellow and green illuminance in order to try and attract a mate.

Photographers often have to use long exposure photography in order to capture the fireflies in action as the flashes of light that they give off are intermittent, even so there's no denying that Japan is home to a pretty amazing spectacle.
