Welcome HRH The Prince of Wales & HIH The Princess Takamado

Kurohime Medical Herb Co., Ltd. Welcomes HRH The Prince of Wales!

Visitation of HRH the Prince of Wales to Kurohime Medical Herb Co., Ltd.

HRH the Prince of Wales has visited Japan to commemorate the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and the United Kingdom. HRH's last visit was in 1990, when he celebrated the enthronement of HIM the Emperor. HRH's visitation to Nagano Prefecture is the first time.

HRH possesses a strong interest in environmental issues and addresses actively to revitalization of traditional farming and restoration of damaged forests. In line with his attention HRH wanted to visit the Afan Forest in Shinano-machi, which Mr. Clive William Nicol, MBE, naturalist and author living there, has named and helped to regenerate by purchasing a wasted forest for 22 years.

The visitation of HRH to Kurohime Medical Herb Co., Ltd. was made possible by the introduction of Mr. Nicol, who is an old acquaintance of our company. True that there were several candidates to be visited, but we were chosen because HRH is so much interested in wild and medical herbs that he loves to drink Ginkgo biloba tea and because Kurohime Medical Herb Co., Ltd. is very active in preserving natural environment.

company shortly after two o'clock on 30th October, 2008.

The president of Kurohime Medical Herb Co., Ltd., Hakaru Kanoh, showed HRH and HIH our medical herb garden. HRH cautiously listened to our president's explanation on medicinal virtues of Nikko Maples and the medical herbs favored by Matagi, or group of huntsmen in northern Japan. In the factory HRH watched a roasting process of bamboo leaves and coix seeds (adlay), a "Herb Function Vitalization Laboratory," a process of eliminating inedible substances, and Tetra Pak packing machines. HRH was particularly interested in the process of eliminating inedible materials from roasted bamboo leaves by examining with the employees' own eyes.

After that four pairs of famers explained their ways of organic agriculture to HRH. HRH showed interests in recycling the remaining raw materials, which are inevitable in roasting processes.

More than 100 local inhabitants welcomed HRH the Prince of Wales's visit. He was very frank to shake hands with a throng of spectators. Kurohime Medical Herb Co., Ltd. distributed special versions of Enmei-Cha to commemorate HRH and HIH's visitation to our company.
