Kata with engraving of Japan Tea in front of Mt. Fuji

Like the kata with the engraved M.H., some had Japan Tea and a stylized drawing of Mt. Fuji engraved inside. According to testimonies, Makoto Hagiwara, 1893 founder and caretaker of the the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, formally introduced Green Tea to America along with the fortune cookie in the Tea Garden in 1914. The flat sembei with the engraved design must have been an optional cookie to have with tea. (note the engraved image has been photographically reversed. Otherwise, it would not be legible on the flat sembei)
