More moth photos

The moths are still here. All the white dots on these signboards are big white moths.


  1. Hi Jonas!
    I constantly follow your blog and I am impressed by this moth thing...
    Are they only in your area or do you think it's a common Sapporo phenomenon?

    1. Today I saw a lot of them at the Odori area, which is two subway stops away from where I live. I was also told that it is even worse in the southern parts of Sapporo. Some parts outside the city are also pretty extreme, I am told.

      Today I was hit in the face by a moth while riding my bicycle to get home, and since they are quite large, that was unpleasant. But it will be over pretty soon, I think.

    2. Thank you very much for your reply!
      I'll comment again on other posts, too.
      Keep up the good job.
