The World Haiku Association was established in the year 2000, and its first conference was held in Tolmin, Slovenia. WHA recognizes and encourages international standards for excellence in haiku without losing appreciation for local and cultural norms.The present membership is 200 from 34 different countries. In order to share haiku throughout the world, WHA has been holding conference biannually, the first being in 2000 in Slovenia, in 2003, in Tenri, Japan, in 2005 in Bulgaria, in 2007 in Tokyo, and in 2009 in Lithuania, all of which ended with a big success. “World Haiku” Anthology is the annual publication of WHA. This bilingual (Japanese and English) anthology has been put together six times, the first one being the “World Haiku 2005” and the latest the “World Haiku 2010”.
