Oouchi-juku (大内宿)was an important post town whose buildings served as shops, inns and restaurants for travellers.




Many buildings have been preserved as they were before the Meiji Restoration (1867) (明治維新), and the area has been designated as an Imortant Preservation for Groups of Traditional Buildings.




The village is now a popular tourist attraction.

Oouchi-juku (大内宿) was a small post station (宿場) in Japan's Edo period (1603-1867) (江戸時代)and part of the Aizu Nishi Kaido (会津西街道).




It is now located in the town of Shimogo in Minamiaizu District, Fukushima prefecture (福島県), and is famous for the numerous traditional thatched buildings from the Edo Period that line its main street.

Haiku about Spring (22)







The Boshin War (戊辰戦争), a civil war in Japan, was fought from 1868 to 1869 between forces of the ruling Tokugawa shogunate and those seeking to return political power to the imperial court.



The Banshoji Temple (萬松寺)in Daisen - city (大仙市), Akita Prefecture (秋田県), was one of the battle sites, where the drooping cherry tree is said to have been completely damaged , but three cherry saplings are said to have been born and grown up, and to bloom now in spring.



On May 5, I visited there and wrote haiku, taking photos of the cherry blossoms.

Haiku about Spring (21)




Today, April 28, was the 49th day after the death of those who passed away in the Great East Japan Earthquake.


I visited the cemetery for those who had died with no surviving relatives, which is in the graveyard at Shouheiji-Temple (勝平寺) in Akita City (秋田市).


I had Buddhist service there with cherry blossoms blooming, when it rained a little while reciting sutra.


The 49th day is called 満中陰 ( manchuuin), the time when the spirits of dead people depart for the Pure Land.

On April 8, Buddha's Birthday, there was a ceremony held for a newly-built image of Buddha in the graveyard of a Buddhist temple, Shouhei-ji (勝平寺), in Akita-city (秋田市).


The chief priest Shunsai Takayanagi (高柳俊哉住職)at the temple of the Sodo sect of Buddhism (曹洞宗), held the ceremony for the purpose of putting Buddha' heart and soul into the new statue with the supporting members of the temple.


The new statue of Buddha was built recently for those who died leaving nobody to look after his or her grave.


 Priest Takayanagi also held the memorial service for those who were killed in the East Japan Earthquake and its Tsunami on March 11.

Haiku about Spring (19)


On the afternoon of March 27, I visited the temple named Shouhei-ji (勝平寺) near my house in Akita-city (秋田市).

In the graveyard is an image of Buddha, which was built recently for those who died leaving nobody to look after their graves.

Visiting there, I found snowflakes wandering over the image of Buddha.

I felt as if each snowflake is the spirit of the victim killed by the earthquake and tsunami on March 11.

I also felt as if the spirits are crying in tears over Buddha, and Buddha did too.

Here in Akita, there was a local fest event called 'Big Tug of War in Kariwano (刈和野大綱引き)'

held recently. It seems that the tug of war is played between winter and spring.

But it is really enjoyed between good harvest and health.

Haiku about Winter (14)


In 'HAIKU Volume 1 EASTERN CULTURE by R.H. BLYTH', Basho's haiku is taken up as follows:


冬籠もり又寄添はんこの柱

Fuyu gomori mata yorisowan kono hashira


Winter seclusion:

Once again I will lean against

This post.


Here, and here only, is the little life set in the circle of the greater, the ordinary in the extreordinary, the commonplace in the miraculous, the material in the spiritual, the human in the divine. To sit on the floor and lean one's back against a post may not seem the acme of comfort, but this is the pleasure Basho is promising himself. During the winter, while the snow is silently falling, he will lean against the post as he did last year, reading and writing poetry, thinking

Thoughts that wander through eternity,

through our eternity, through the greater life. This post, rubbed amooth with countless vigils, black where his head rested against it, is all he asks for.


Inspired by Bsho's haiku above, I wrote haiku below.


Old bookworm

Yukiguni ya gyoukan ni sumu hon no mushi
