Photos: Mogami River -A river famous in Matsuo Basho's haiku
If you travel somewhere in the Tohoku region of Japan, I recommend taking a cruise on the Mogami River. The famous poet, Basho MATSUO (1644–1694) left the following haiku (Japanese seventeen-syllable poem):
Gathering seawards The summer rains, how swiftly flows Mogami River. (Translated by Donald Keene)
