Kanikakuya (meaning somehow) to the memory of Yoshii Isamu Festival, November 8, Kyoto, Japan
Yoshii Isamu (吉井 勇, October 8, 1886 - November 9, 1960) was a Japanese tanka poet and playwright writer active in Taishō and Shōwa period Japan. Attracted to European romanticism in his youth, his later works were more subdued.
The teahouse "Daitomo," is known by the tanka poem "Kanikakuya" (meaning somehow) by Isamu YOSHII.
