About the Author:

Inabata Teiko is the third President of Japan's largest haiku society, Hototogisu, founded over a hundred years ago by her grandfather, Takahama Kyoshi. In 1949, at the age of eighteen, when she quit her studies at Sacred Heart College because of pleurisy, she decided to focus on haiku and live as a haiku poet. Every summer, Kyoshi would conduct haiku meetings for young students of Tokyo University, Kyoto University and Gakushuin College beside Lake Yamanaka-ko. This is where she studied haiku and began following in the footsteps of Kyoshi, Toshio (her father) and Tatsuko (her aunt) in their haiku journeys.
