Can I bring NZ honey into Japan? 2007/10/17 14:20
Hi, I'm travelling to Japan in a few weeks and I would like to bring New Zealand food as gifts for my friend's family.
I was talking to someone in a New Zealand souvenir shop, who said that because of the fear of diseases of bees, some countries are not allowing honey to be brought in.
I was going to buy some good quality manuka honey, but I do not want to waste my money if it will just be taken off me at the airport.
Does anyone know the rules regarding this?

New Zealand honey can be bought here and I also bring some back to Japan every time I go home to New Zealand.

The Customs officers in Japan sometimes ask me to open my bag and then have a look through it, and they have never commented on the honey.
