naviarhaiku384 – The beginning of all art

The beginning of all art:
a song when planting a rice field
in the country’s inmost part.



Ichihara Tayo-Jo (1776 – 1865) lost her husband at 31, and for many years she had to take care of her family and business on her own. Tayo discovered haiku thanks to Ishii Ukoo, a local, accomplished haiku poet and friend of hers; she moved to Edo in 1823, where she lived as a haiku master until very old age.
