Honey is Mother Nature’s gift of gold. But in a world where urbanisation is fast taking over the natural world, our hard working honey bees are facing threats bigger than ever before.
When it comes to urban living, Tokyo is the world’s largest metropolitan area; and with little green space available amongst the jungle of concrete, you may be surprised to hear how one NPO is successfully raising honey bees right in the center of the city.
The Ginza Honey Bee Project, which started in 2006, aims to connect people with nature and lead society to a more sustainable future. Since its establishment, the Ginza Honey Bee Project has connected more than 18,000 people in the community through apiary tours and honey-extracting experiences.
Now the Ginza Honey Bee Project is ready to share the fruits of their labor with you, in the form of environmentally friendly honey produced from the nectar of flowers from Hibiya Park, Hama Rikyu and the Imperial Palace.
