Masaoka Shiki Haiku database
The Shiki kaishi (子規会誌) is the official journal of the Matsuyama Shiki Society (松山子規会) whose members study and promote the work of Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902), a major figure in the development of the modern haiku and Japanese literature more broadly. The Shiki kaishi has been published continuously on a quarterly basis since April, 1979, and contains hundreds of articles on Shiki and his circle, including such figures as Natsume Sōseki, Takahama Kyoshi, Kawahigashi Hekigotō, and Naitō Meisetsu. . With the permission of the Society’s membership, Boston University makes its contents available and searchable for issues 1-161.
