Cicadas

Cicadas are one of the symbols for Japanese summer. Today, I felt summer had arrived when I heard a chirp of a cicada. There are several types of cicadas in Japan. The most popular one is the brown cicada, and they noisily chirp during the daytime. Another one is the evening cicada; they chirp in the evening as their name show. The sound reminds me of my childhood, for example, when I was getting back home after I played with friends until sunset.

Cicadas
Cicadas are one of the symbols for the Japanese summer.
Today, I felt that summer had arrived when I heard athe chirp of a cicada.
Alternative:
When I heard the chirp of a cicada today, it felt like summer had arrived.
(This version puts a bigger emphasis on the reason)
There are several types of cicadas in Japan.
The most popular one is the brown cicada, and they noisily chirp during the daytime.
Another one is the evening cicada; they chirp in the evening as their name shows.
You can also use the word "imply" here, as in:
"Another one is the evening cicada; they chirp in the evening as their name implies."
Which I think is a bit more accurate.
The sound reminds me of my childhood, for example,like when I was getting back home after I played with friends until sunset.
Your sentence is grammatically correct, but "for example" sounds a little stiff in this context. "Like" makes the sentence flow a bit more nicely.
