Large brown cicada

large brown cicada We call them "Abura Zemi".
"abura" means oil.
Thier voice is similar to the sound that we hear when we are deep-frying some food in oil.
They sing even at night.

Funabashi is a habitable place for them.
There are many sand pear(nashi pear) farm here, and they love fruit tree.

When I was a teenager I would go to stay with my brother in Oklahoma. They had big cicadas there. In the summer they would come out and make a lot of noise and leave their skins from molting all over the ground. I liked them.

My playmates and I pick those up from trees during summer, we know its summer when they start to sing...much like how I notice the depiction of Japanese movies and animes, they use cicadas to denote that summer has come.
