Chatsumi. Japan. Chatsumi (茶摘み) is the japanese traditional method of picking tea leaves. In Wazuka, the rural area of Kyoto, during the sunny seasons there’s the chance to take part to this educational activity, in which typical clothes and tools are illustrated and used.
This is undoubtedly a fascinating jump in the past, to discover one of the many traditions of Japan.
