Chikako Yokoyama was the second daughter born to the owners of the well-established Aramaki Apiary, which has a 100-year history in Fukuoka. After working in Tokyo as a fashion designer for seven years, she relocated to Bern (the capitol of Switzerland) where she lived with her sushi-chef husband for four years. Yokoyama returned to Fukuoka to take over the family business, becoming a fourth-generation beekeeper. In addition to selling homemade honey, she opened a honey-themed cafe and variety goods shop called COZY ROOM. In January of 2007, she established Honey Bell Co., Ltd. and is also the company's owner. The same year, she launched the "Renge Ippai Project", which works to solve issues from beekeepers' perspectives, produce specialty goods related to astragalus flowers, and strengthen collaborative product plans as well as specialty goods among women's farming groups in Fukuoka City and the Ogori City Tourism Association.
