The Japanese Honey Bee (Apis cerana japonica). A subspecies of the Eastern Honey Bee native to Japan, and also occurs in South and Southeastern Asia up to Russia, even has been found as far as Afghanistan. A darker brown version of the Eastern Honey Bee, adapts more easily to adverse weather and is less likely to sting. It is also more resistant to the mite that is thought to cause colony collapse disease.
