Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica Thunb.) is an evergreen climbing vine, naturally distributed in Japan and East Asia. Its dried buds and leaves are used as a traditional crude drug in Japan and many Asian countries (Pradhan et al., 2009; Wang et al., 2009; Park et al., 2012). In Japan, these drugs are known as ‘Kinginka’ (flower buds) and ‘Nindou’ (leaves). The majority of crude drugs used in Japan, including those produced from Japanese honeysuckle, are imported from overseas, i.e… Expand
