[Free admission] 7/28-30 Honey event “Honey Festa 2023” will be held in Ginza in summer

Held for the first time in four years. Beekeepers and import companies will set up stalls and hold workshops that both children and adults can enjoy.

About 100 types of honey from Japan and the world are gathered together! They also sell sweets and alcoholic beverages made with honey. You can taste and drink before purchasing. Workshops, honey bee tours, honey contest voting, etc. are also held. It is an event that is useful for children's summer vacation (8th time this year)

The Japan Honey Meister Association, which manages honey qualifications, held an event "Honey Festa 2023" where you can learn various ways to use honey on the weekend just before Honey Day (8/3) and purchase honey from various places. will be held. In 2020 and 2021, the schedule overlapped with the Tokyo Olympics, so the 2022 event was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Therefore, it will be held for the first time in four years.

For consumers, even if they have an image that honey is "good for the body and beauty", the reality is that there are many opinions that they don't really know how to use honey other than adding it to yogurt or toast. Also, many people do not know that there is a wide variety of honeys in the world, and that each one has a different aroma and taste.

This event, which is being held for the 8th time this year, is an activity to spread honey . By experiencing the deliciousness of various honeys and experiencing how to use honey according to its purpose, you can reconfirm the "goodness of honey" and make it your daily life. We aim to have you use it effectively. This event is also a place to introduce lesser-known honeys, as about 100 types of honey from Japan and overseas will be available at the same time.
In addition, a general voting section was held at the venue where visitors could eat and vote for the honey that remained until the final judgment in the contest "6th Honey of the Year" to select the most delicious honey that can be purchased in Japan. increase.
