Abstract: "In the hilly or mountainous of Japan, people usually had been used to make the daily tool from bamboo. In this area, villages have maintained common forest to get a timber and fuel. Within such Japanese tradition, peoples in Katsuyama village, on northern flank of Mt. Fuji, are now well known as the maker of bamboo basket made from 'Suzutake' bamboo (Sasamorpha borealis) grows under their common forest. In this monograph, we try to describe the historical change of economical position of this bamboo work in Katsuyama and discuss the value of regional accumulation of cultural capital as technique."
