Tokyo Traffic Culture Exhibition

In 2018, 2019, and 2020 I worked with Emiko Miyashita to translate winning haiku and the judge’s commentary for the annual Traffic Culture Exhibition held at Ueno Station in Tokyo. Exhibition dates were 18–23 October 2018 and 25–30 October 2019. For 2018 we also translated content related to the exhibit’s photography components, including titles, descriptions, and commentary from the judges, and also translated “A History of the Sakuryōkai Exhibition.” Here are the winning poems, selected by Hasegawa Kai, followed by exhibit photographs from 2018.
