  1. Editors: in editing mode, if you are composing details of a new Hailstone event, be sure to save what you’ve typed before viewing. I learnt the hard way!

  2. Dear Tito,

    I received your note regarding some joint writing activity during this summer, and without hesitation I must reply yes.
    Please reply at your convenience if this is still acceptable to you.
    After reading your posted schedule, I have to admit I’m not familiar with the geography; might I require some study?

    Yours truly,

    Willie (bandit)

  3. Just a note to say we look forward to the ginko event this Sunday. the 27th September.

    We are looking forward to seeing you at the Kukai at our humble house on the 23 Sept. Throw in your haiku or two, please.

  7. Ella Rutledge Says:

    Hello. I received something in the mail from Kikakuza–perhaps related to the 2010 haibun contest–while I was out of the country. The post office returned it to you because I did not pick it up from them within a week. I am back home now. Could you please try sending it again?

    Thanks so much.

    • Have passed this request on to Nobuyuki Yuasa, Ella. Feel free to leave comments on this site anywhere, or submit something of your own via the Submissions page anytime you like.

  8. Hi, I am intersted in the event on Nov.27.
    I would love to attend this.
    Can I just show up on that day, or should I register first?

    • Dear Chieko,
      You can just turn up on the day. Look out for a foreign face or two amongst some Japanese standing very near that koban at 1:30. Hope to see you!

  9. Hi, Tito,
    Thank you for your response, see you there!

    • Maybe our English Haiku Poems class will interest you? It is called ‘Hibikiai Forum’ and is held on Dec. 9 and Jan. 13 near the Imperial Park in Kyoto. You can telephone Keiko Yurugi after 8pm on 075-771-9338 for details. Hope to see you sometime.

  13. Dear Icebox. I will be in Kyoto on May 13 and 14th and would like to take an evening haiku course. I got your address through my travel agent “Japan Moods”. Please let me know how to proceed?
    Thank you.

  15. Hello Tito,

    The Blogger posting service I am using has been having maintenance problems for the last 24 hours or so. I am unable to post updates, contact and submission information.

    I will remain watchful, and when service resumes I will update information online.

    Thank you for your patience. We will go on with our walk regardless of “technological” error. May you enjoy a lovely time together; our hearts and thoughts are with you!

    • Dear Willie,
      I hope the technology will get into shape by the time the various ginko groups begin to post their poems on your site. We are having ours here in Kyoto tomorrow. It is the eve of one of the three big annual festivals here, the Aoi Matsuri (not Aoba!), so we prefer 14th to the 15th when everywhere will be so packed we might not be able to think straight – a tall order, at the best of times! I will lead a small Hailstone group ( I prefer the collective noun ‘fable’) of poets up and down the Kamo River via an iris garden and a shrine to pray. I will try to insist that everyone who submits anything to you should make a credit card donation to one of the charities we’ve got up listed (many will have done already, but…). I donated a fistful of dollars to JEN just now, and am thinking about doing a spot of sludge clearance up in Tohoku in late summer with them if I can. We’ll see. Yes, you have a fine walk with your gang of Dottie Dots and what-not, … and all power to your expression.
      Green regards,
      Tito
      PS I’ll copy and paste this same message into your site somewhere later by way of vibe!

  19. Please note that if you wish to join the Autumn Haiku Hike in N. Nagano pref., you must contact Hisashi Miyazaki by the end of July, as accommodation both in the mountain-top hut and in the mountain-foot hot spring inn is very competitive at the height of autumn foliage!

  20. Hi Tito,

    Making an English haiku is my new experience. I seek a group in Kanto now. Also I have some ideas to enrich and can I contact you via Email?
