People dressed in Costumes from Heian period improvise tanka poems on the bank of the meandering stream ... Have you ever seen such a scene on TV?
"Kyokusui-no-en (a winding stream party)" is held in Jonan-gu on November 3 every year.
It is a reproduction of poetry-composition events held in the imperial court during the Nara and Heian Period, the poets improvise tanka poems in accordance with the theme and drink a flowing sacred sake.
Don't you think making tanka poems inspired by seasonal beauty is similar to us posting or tagging on social media?
It is a festival that makes people from the Heian Period feel more familiar.
