Travel Guide - Haiseiden (Haiku Sanctuary)


Iga-Ueno is the birthplace of Japan's most famous haiku poet, Matsuo Basho (1644 - 1694). Haiseiden is a unique shaped building stands in Ueno Park. The building was constructed in 1942 to celebrate the 300-year anniversary of Basho's birth and a statue of the poet is enshrined inside. The Haiseiden's elegant figure expresses the poet's traveling attire. The round roof on top is a hat, the octagon-shaped roof in the middle is a stole, and the post is a walking stick.

A haiku on guards. Ahem:

Ever vigilant
