Ohigan

September 21 is Ohigan (also known as Shubun no hi or Higan no chu-nichi)and thus Haruki cemetery clean-up day for the SC/SS 115 Ethnobotany class. At the beginning of class I gave a brief tour of the cemetery, along with an explanation of who Katsuhida Aruga was, and a warning about the dangers of rebar in the cemetery. Then I set the class to work.

Swinging a grass pick while Jeffrey looks on. He quickly confiscated the grass pick and swung with more force and precision.
