Hello! I'm Yasuhiro. I'm poet,poetry performer,and poetry researcher. When I was in junior high school, I was fascinated by the tanka poems I read in my textbooks, and have been reading both classical and modern tanka poems. In addition to researching waka and tanka as a researcher, I am also a student at Reizei family, a traditional and classical waka school in Kyoto, and am a member of Kokoronohana, a modern tanka study group. I love kimonos and have given lectures wearing costumes from of The Tale of Genji era, including the classic Japanese poetry reading ``Hikou,'' the classic Japanese song ``Imayou'' and several other classics. instruments can be played. In recent years, I have formed ``Waka Live'' with Ayako Noguchi, a top runner in the tanka industry, and have been performing my classical ``Hikou '' and Ayako's modern and dramatic tanka readings.
