Bunkyo Museum

poster for Seasonal Poetry - 140 years since the birth, and 50 years since the death of poet Utsubo Kubota

Ends in 15 days

Utsubo Kubota (1877-1967) spent more than 50 years studying Japanese poetry and literature from his base in Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo. During his long literary career, which spanned the Meiji (1868-1912), Taisho (1912-1926) and Showa (1926-1989) eras, Kubota penned more than 14,000 poems, counting those in his anthologies alone, while also researching classical Japanese waka poetry, and teaching at Waseda University. He supported the growth of many successors who continue to dedicate themselves to Japanese poetry. This exhibition celebrating the 140th anniversary of his birth, and marking 50 years since his death, will focus on Kubota’s seasonal poetry about Bunkyo and other related works.
