Woodblock print (reprint) - Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) - The Tea plantation of Katakura in Suruga Province From the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji - Late 20th century

Suruga Province (now part of Shizuoka Prefecture) features prominently in Hokusai’s Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series, with four prints dedicated to it. This print depicts what must have been a typical workday on the Katakura tea plantation. Shizuoka was known for tea production as early as the Muromachi period (1329-1573), and tea remains an important crop for the region today, being exported throughout Japan and the rest of the world. The print is filled with details: rows of women picking tea leaves, a man packing them into baskets, other men carrying them to a shed. Near the shed one of the workers repairs a horse’s straw shoe, while another attempts to coax his reluctant beast across a narrow bridge.
