1500: Thatched cottage (Hiroshima) (Morita)

An idyllic scene in late spring: this thatched cottage, with its accompanying kura (storehouse) is reflected in a newly flooded paddy field, the scene completed by a cherry in full flower and a splendid set of koinobori (carp streamers for boys' day).

The house is preserved in Bihoku Park, in Shobara (Hiroshima Prefecture).

Born 1946 in Osaka, Morita set out as a freelance scenic photographer in 1975. He has had numerous collections of his work published in book form, as well as calendars and other media, and continues a punishing schedule, spending 200 days a year tramping the Japanese archipelago for material. (Morita is his family name.)
