1874-1959
Kyōshi was one of the masters of the haiku tradition in the late Meiji, Taishō, and early Shōwa periods. The name Kyōshi was given him by Masaoka Shiki. Kyōshi inherited Shiki's haiku magazine Hototogisu and continued Shiki's literary circle, where writers and poets reviewed their own work. Kyōshi also wrote novels and essays, nut was most celebrated for his poems which were traditional in style but fresh in spirit.
