Giffen Butterflies and Spring Flowers Observation
Date: Saturday, April 30

As the snow melts, spring flowers begin to bloom all at once, and the first to arrive are the spring fairies, the gryphons. Endemic to Japan, the number of these butterflies has been decreasing in recent years. Fortunately, the Myoko area is still close enough to encounter this precious butterfly. Why don’t you come and learn about its ecology while seeing its beautiful appearance and think about what you can do to protect it? Participation fee is 1,000 yen per person and advance application is required. Please apply by phone or e-mail. Date and time may be subject to change due to weather or outbreak conditions.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
