Haiku by Basho. From "Narrow Road to Oku" I was in Tokyo for a couple of days. I had a little extra time there so I visited Kiyosumi district, where Basho's hut used to locate. The location is right by the Sumida River, and this is where Basho took a boat to begin his long journey to Oku. Kiyosumi district now has a number of contemporary art galleries, including Tomio Koyama Gallery(http://www.tomiokoyamagallery.com/index/eng/frame.html). Komiyama found artists like Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara. Click the image for a larger version.
