Narashi – trimming the hedges

November 08, 2010

Narashi?is a preparation work for next year’s tea harvest. We trim the hedges to make a base for next year’s leaves. We also end up cutting the tips of leaves that stick out!


I am doing it with my work partner, Kenji.
A big tired? Keep it up, Kenji.

However, do you see the blue sky in the back? Isn’t it gorgeous?
Cumulonimbus cloud, like summer time??

 


今日はならしでーす!

ならしとは来年の茶刈るために、台になる葉をきれいに整える作業です。

かる?く飛び出た葉をカットしまんねん!!

相方のけんじくんとやってます?。

ちょっと疲れてる?ファイトー。

しかし、バックの青空、きれいでしょー。
夏みたいな入道雲??
