    Haiku, consisting of 17 syllables in a 5-7-5 pattern, is said to be the world’s shortest poetic form. Haiku are recently becoming popular overseas too. Matsuyama has produced many haiku poets over the centuries, including Shiki Masaoka, originator of the modern haiku. The city is renowned as the world capital of haiku culture. The museum displays a wide range of exhibits related to Shiki, providing an accessible look at his life and the history of literature in Matsuyama. The third floor has a reconstruction of Gudabutsuan, the house that Shiki shared with the novelist Sōseki Natsume.
