Information of “Isumi city Tanka Convention”

** “Tanka” is a Japanese short poem

The east side of Isumi city faces to the Pacific Ocean, and hills and paddy fields make beautiful scenery in the west. There are also several historical cultural heritages in the city.

Many litterateurs visited Isumi looking for this environment, and especially great masters of modern Tanka left lots of famous Tanka.

Mori Ogai had a villa in the current Nichizai, Isumi-shi, and Wakayama Bokusui and Saito Mokichi also visited Isumi. Those are famous Kajin (poets) I know.

In such a traditional place Isumi, “2nd Isumi Tanka Convention” is going to be held.

The Convention itself is still to come on February 15, 2015 (Sun), but Tanka started to be accepted from September 1st, 2014.

It’s getting cool and now it’s a time the season changes.
The image of autumn, late autumn and winter may be come up with from now on.

Why don’t you take a walk to visit your favorite place or a location with nice view in the city, and create Tanka feeling the atmosphere of the place?
Or you can create Tanka of love letter just like young Kajin (poet) in old days. (Teenagers are most welcome!)

The autumn is a season of art. Why don’t you try this art of Japanese language?
