In his late twenties Matsuo Basho moved to Edo (now Tokyo), where he joined the local active poetry community: he started writing under the name Basho after he received a basho tree from one of his students. Basho wrote in a particular form called Haibun, a fusion of haiku and prose: his most famous haibun collection is The Narrow Road to the Interior.
