Welcome to "Studio Kinotoriko"

" Honeybees and the Labyrinths of Flowers " published !

HB_cover_forPub.jpgIt' been such a long time since I last updated! I've been working on the new picture-book for a long time. Now, in Japan, on  March 8th, it's finally issued ; entitled
" Honeybees and the Labyrinths of Flowers" .

In this book, many nectar plants from various regions in the world are introduced, in style of the maze, as if you are  wandering among these flowers with " a honey-bee-point of view " !
It is one of the so-called activity book, enjoyable for tracing and coloring the maze, but it also has much information on honeybees, flowers and the relationships between them and we humans.

Dr. Masami Sasaki ( professor emeritus / Tamagawa University), the leading expert in the field of honeybee research, has supervised the contents, to make this book also recommendable for ones who love natural science.
