Haiku Banners and Translations

Post date: Jul 23, 2016 12:11:52 AM

An extensive new addition to the Translations page, also available via Digressions, is “Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Banners.” This page includes a set of haiku translated by Emiko Miyashita and me for an installation of spectacular haiku banners for the 2011 Sakura Days Japan Fair. Here you’ll see our translations, selected photos, and three photo albums showcasing the installation. English-language haiku appear on the white banners, with our Japanese translations on the blue banners. These banners were designed and installed by Jane Durante at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, British Columbia in April of 2011.
