Have you seen fireflies?
An event for watching fireflies is being held in an observation room at Adachi Park of Living Things 足立生物園 in the daytime.

You can see fireflies in the prepared room without expensive cost.
Instead, if you want to see fireflies in the nature you need to go to other places at night.

You can easily see fireflies in daytime in Tokyo.

It's open from 13:00 to 16:00 on Saturday and Sunday between June 15 and July 7, 2019.

Recommended hot springs around this area

Low Priced and Popular Hot Spring / SPA RYUSENJINOYU near Tokyo 竜泉寺の湯 草加谷塚店
I have been to this hot spring a few times. It is still unknown to international tourists. I recommend you go there on weekdays. On weekends and during holiday season, probably it is crowded in the bathing rooms and restaurant.
