Importance of ‘Bees’ – Japanese Bee Honey | ニホンミツバチの蜂蜜

 

Guaranteed pure honey from my sister, who resides in the Japanese Alps district.

Having had seen a documentary movie called  ‘More than Honey’;  the movie itself provides a good insight to the decimating beehives from all over the world and Japan I believe is not one of them.  I was not aware that “80% of plant species require bees to be pollinated” which means that without the existence of bees, I think our human food source will be totally affected even our human evolution.  Although the reason of decimating bees is unknown; it is sometimes pathetic even egoistic that we only think of ‘Oh! lack of honey’  when we hear of such fact.

So when I received a  long-awaited bottles of pure natural honey from the Japanese Honeybee (Nihon-Mitsubachi), considered a rarity in the market; it felt like receiving a precious diamond syrup which I will use with utmost care for my husband who needs strong immunity after his laryngeal cancer surgery.

 

ニホンミツバチの蜂蜜。
田舎に住む妹からの貴重な一品。
『みつばちの大地』というドキュメント映画を見てから世界的にミツバチが大量死したり、減っているという現象を知る。(個人的に)ドキュメンタリー映画としての出来はあまり良いとは思えなかったけれど、その事実を捉えた映像や『80%の植物の受粉』をミツバチがやってくれているという事実。ミツバチは地球上になくてはならない存在なのだ、、ということを再認識した映画でした。無知の再認識みたいな。
妹は都会は離れ、田舎で暮らしを始めニホンミツバチ(も)を養蜂しようとしているがなかなか難しいみたいです。このニホンミツバチは純正なる蜜で味は表現のしようがなく絶妙。都会で手に入る蜜とはちょっと比べ物にならない位、、、私にとってはとってもスペシャルな『宝物』です。去年の喉頭癌の手術から免疫を必要としている主人の薬に毎日のヨーグルトに入れて食べています。
