Last year it hosted more than 10,000 people only for 3 days! Phenomenal!

Aside from the honey products in the store (jams, lotions, pastries, etc.), the tents outside will offer a variety of good foods from Akita prefecture such as Inaniwa Udon, sake, pickled veggies, white taiyaki (fish-shaped pancake of rice flour) and so many more things. You can also find Kikuzo Ramen, which is a package of ramen noodle designed by Kikuou Hayashiya, a famous Rakugo (落語;Japanese traditional verbal entertainment) story-teller.

Stage performances and recreational games are available as well. Try your luck to win some Bee Skep products!

What’s more? With a purchase of over 2,000 yen, you will receive a pair of tickets to the Rakugo event on October 16th. Yes, Mr. Kikuou Hayashiya will be the headliner along with opening acts by other prominent rakugo storytellers. The tickets are not sold—it is only given to customers at the Honey Festival. Only 1,000 tickets are given away on a first come, first served basis.
