The tree harvesting is strictly controlled. People are allowed to cut linden trees only for three days.
During a certain weekend we had to finish everything!
It was on a steep hill side where everybody was working and it was getting hotter with the sun. Too hot even for me who was just taking pictures.
taking pictures. Honestly I wanted to stay in a shady spot not working.
Then I realized everybody is much older than me.
After the harvested barks are rearranged equally to distribute to each member, all the men started opening their beer cans…
Are they still drinking here?
Mountain herb, “warabi”, harvested yesterday.
First work in the early morning is preparing “warabi” pickles.
A couple hours later, we were invited for lunch.
We had some cooked “warabi”, simple and tasty.
It seems like a peaceful afternoon in the collective studio. A half hour later we had a pouring rain. I had a huge regret not to take any picture of it.
Later, I was driving through the shower back to the train station click for more info.
