Bee Well


From Atsuko Sagara, a leading figure in Montessori education in Japan, Yoko Honda learned the essence of education, including the Enseignement Personnalisé et Communautaire, a method of education that values the initiative and rhythm of each child, and the universal effectiveness at the heart of Montessori education. 


Yoko Honda also studied under the cultural anthropologist, Mr. Takaji Fujisawa. She believes in "learning by doing", a process of learning proactively through sensory experience, is the educational method that  develops a person’s ability to respond flexibly in society.


She joined as a bank employee and after gaining work experience, she worked in the field of education for more than 20 years, and has been involved in child-rearing support and social education through her experience in promoting the Montessori method.


She plans and manages events, has a counseling room in a clinic, a public facility, and a creative space called Beehive. She hopes that everyone will realize that they are irreplaceable and to live life with joy. She supports the fulfillment of each person's potential and self-realization.

She is known for her insightfulness and works with a wide range of people from infants to adults. Overseas, she provides mental health care and educational consultation to Japanese expatriates. Learn the essence of education from her.

1 Montessori education is a "self-reliant education" that originated in Italy and has a track record of over 100 years around the world. The reliability of this educational method has been proven in terms of cerebral physiology, psychology, and pedagogy.


2 Polarity therapy is a safe and state-licensed therapy in the United States, comparable to acupuncture.

Randolph Stone (1890~1981), a naturopathic doctor, created this therapy by integrating traditional Eastern medicine and Western natural medicine.


3 ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) is "education and learning that enables all people to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values necessary to realize a sustainable future," which Japan proposed and promoted to the United Nations in 2002.


4 The development of leaders for a sustainable society through ESD contributes to all of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the member countries of the United Nations in 2015.
