Synopsis:
A bilingual edition in English and Japanese with colour illustrations of one of the most famous works in Japanese literature. In the account which he named the Narrow Road to Oku, Basho makes a journey lasting 150 days on foot covering 2,450 kilometres around Japan. Fully illustrated by Miyata Masayuki to represent Basho's haiku, this is a beautiful book to showcase Basho, the self-styled "beggar of winds and madness". Basho originated and refined a unique genre of fictional travel literature which used poetry as a means of rendering, out of nothing, all of creation.

"Journeying is the flower of elegance. Elegance, the spirit of travelers long gone: The places seen and recorded by Saigyo and Sogi - All those are the heart of haikai." Basho.
