Join the Japan Society of Boston on August 19th, 2021 at 6:00 pm EDT as we enter the world of poetry!  See why our intern, Chris Ellars fell in love with Japanese poetry and how he embraces them in his life. 

We will be discussing different poetry forms, including haiku and waka. We will be looking into the lives and works of three Japanese poetry masters: Matsuo Bashō, Izumi Shikibu, and Ono no Komachi.

Come along for the literary journey, and make sure to bring some poems of your own, as we will open the floor to the audience to share their own poetry.
