Ashes to Honey (ミツバチの羽音と地球の回転 Mitsubashi no haoto to chikyū no kaiten?), (literally "Humming of Bees and Rotation of the Earth") is a Japanese documentary directed by Hitomi Kamanaka and released in 2010. It is the third in Kamanaka's trilogy of films on the problems of nuclear power and radiation, preceded by Hibakusha at the End of the World (also known as Radiation: A Slow Death) and Rokkasho Rhapsody.
The documentary covers the long struggle of the residents of Iwaijima island in the Inland Sea of Japan to prevent the construction of a nuclear power plant across the bay. It compares the situation to Sweden, where models of sustainable energy are being explored.
