The Real Ghost of Tsushima- The Tsushima Leopard Cat

The island of Tsushima became world-famous thanks to the game, Ghost of Tsushima. Like the title, there is in fact a ghost on the island, the Tsushima Leopard cat. They are rarely seen as they are active at night and keeps their distance from humans. They might soon be ghosts in a more literal sense soon as car collisions and loss of habitat have made Tsushima leopard cats critically endangered.

Traditonal Japanese Beekeeping

There has been beekeeping in Japan for over a 1000 years. The honey of the Japanese honey bee is harvested by capturing wild swarms and housing them in a constructed log or pile box hive. Japanese honey bees produce less honey than Western honey bees but they make up for it in by being expert pollinators and by being more hardy towards diseases, the cold, and predators.
