Takeo Yosezato




Video production was my former business, but I got interested in community planning and have become coordinator of community planning. I had a chance to study at the Ginza Bee Project in Ginza, Tokyo and I later started sightseeing with beekeeping in Shimoda, a tourist resort. I do my best to let the tourists to Shimoda, taste the genuine local foods. Shimoda is my hometown.


Today, so many imported low price honeys are distributed throughout Japan in market principles. The genuine honey would crystallize in winter, while most of honeys in shops would not, because of various additives in them. They are often processed with high temperature to facilitate the product line. As the result, original key contents of honey, as fermented food, are unfortunately destroyed. For amateur radio fans who join us, through call sign JA2BWL, I will be a good guide of this town.

My recommendations

Superb view spots of Shimoda recommended by local guides
It is Ogasaki Wing. The scenery from the cliff of about 70 meters high, will revive tired travelers. The beautiful coastline is breathtaking.
The most favorite place in Shimoda
I was born and raised in this 90 year old, a bit western style house. Now, I'm occupied in beekeeping to revitalize my home town, while enjoy living in this lovely old house.

So many curious things in the nature.
