Matsu Sentei, Nara
Posted 21st November 2009 • Archive • Previous Post • Next Post
On a trip to Nara (to check out Isui-en garden) I came across this bit of pine pruning, around the back of the small museum next to the garden (actually I heard the snipping from inside the museum, and was out in a flash.)
They were using that most rare thing, an 11' tripod ladder (they're made in all sizes, but 10' and 12' seem more popular.)
As with most gardeners in Japan, the guy thought it funny that such as mundane job could be so fascinating to a foreigner. He had a nice variation on the towel-on-the-head.
