Kyoto Momiji Tanka

Author(s): Andrew Lansdown

Poetry & Plays

Kyoto Momiji Tanka is a stunning collection of poems and photographs celebrating the ancient capital of Japan, Kyoto, during autumn, when the maples (momiji) vividly colour the natural, cultural and emotional terrains of the Japanese.

The photographs and poems (written in a traditional Japanese form known as tanka) introduce the reader to a fascinating world of Shinto brides, tanuki, spirit foxes, geisha, shakuhachi players and, of course, autumn maples.
