Overview

Japani, Keisarit, Lempimuistomme by mei yumi

"Japani, keisarit, lempimuistomme" as "Japan, emperors, and favorite memories" includes 62 waka-verses from 46 waka-poets. You will see how the japanese appreciate the nature. Emotions, sentiments, and our own ways of life are reflected into 31 charcter-waka poetries. The resources of 62 wakas include four classical waka anthologies, compiled from the 7th century through the 13th. We study wakas and their background stories, traditions and cultures in high school education. The emotions expressed in wakas have a considerable influence upon the mentality of japanese and still remain in the japanese cultures. In the book, each waka poetry is shown in calligraphy and translated with its background story. The japanese historical facts are told about with a tint of gossip, written in Finnish. Meiyumi is a freelance writer and a translator. Saiko is a calligrapher highly estimated in art galleries in Ginza Tokyo, and her work is displayed in a historical museum. Enjoy!
