    Hi my name is Aki and I’m a beekeeper in Awa city, Tokushima.
    Im taking care of my european honey bees, in the hills and around the river, I have many sites for my bees to harvest pollen from different flowers and trees.
    I take care of my bees everyday, aswell as crafting the hives and using harvesting equipment.
    In the spring season and fall season, I harvest the honey.

    I have many hives, and they increased a lot, I cannot take care of them alone, so need help looking after them.

    It doesn’t matter for me you’re man or woman as long as you’re interested in my job.

    But, I don’t want to invite people who have taken a drug. I’ll refuse such people.
    Please, understand that.

    I will teach you how to open my hives and confirm there is queen bee or not, and if any of the bees have a sickness. We will travel between my bee hives around Tokushima and check the hives. In May and July we will harvest honey together and put it into jars

    To prepare for bee keeping there is always crafting of the hives, crafting the comb frames and cutting the weeds in and around the hives. I will also show you how to do this.
