Gifu butterfly 

Hi I am Matsu from J-Hoppers Hida Takayama.

Do you like hiking?

The hiking season has just started in the Japanese Alps in places like Kamikouchi,Norikura….
Many people have gone hiking to Kamiko-chi since then.

For me, this season reminds me of Gifu butterfles
Gifu butterfly was found in Gifu prefecture in 1883.

My dad was known as a butterfly professor and loved butterflies.
He kept some pupa of the butterflies in my home last year.
My father passed away last year suddenly.
My dad taught us the preciousness of life through butterflies.

My mum and I felt that we have to let the Gifu butterflies emerge from a pupa
We looked after them carefully. We managed to do it .

I think my dad would be happy with what we did.
