Fall in Japan
We asked Yasuhiko Shirota to take us on a visit to the fall season in his homeland, Japan, and he kindly replied with this striking set of images and haiku.
Shirota was born in Nagano City, Japan in 1941 and is a graduate of Waseda University.
He is a member of the "sakura no mi" Japanese Haiku Club and the Megura International Friendship Association, International Haiku Circle.
A selection of his haiku also appeared in a previous issue: March/April 2004.
And, a set of Images of Japan in the Spring appeared in the May/June issue.
