Kakio Tomizawa (1902 – 1962) was one of the most influential members of the Shinko Haiku, an innovative movement that aimed at modernizing haiku in the early 20th century. By drawing inspiration from the Western literature and adding abstractions and analogies to their works, members of the Shinko Haiku group wanted to differentiate themselves from the trend of that period, which required poets to write haiku based on exact observations.
