The Shiki Museum
Considered to have the shortest fixed poetic form in the world, haiku are becoming more widespread outside Japan as well in recent years. With its history of producing an impressive number of haiku poets, including MASAOKA Shiki, the originator of the modern haiku, Matsuyama is well-known as a city with a flourishing haiku culture. In the museum, a diverse range of materials related to Shiki are displayed, providing visitors with an accessible and informative overview of the life of Shiki and the literary history of Matsuyama. A permanent exhibition shows visitors a 1st-floor-only reconstruction of the Gudabutsu-an hermitage that Shiki once shared with novelist NATSUME Sōseki.
