*Sold out as it is sold out.

A book has been published by Reiwa Kadokoro. It's called "The Biographies of Hyakunin Isshu Poets"!
Hyakunin Isshu is not about singing, but about ``enjoying the poet.'' Please learn about the interesting stories and representative songs of 20 carefully selected poets.
If you read this, you will feel much closer to the poets who were ``unidentified old men from a long time ago''.
After you finish reading this book, please look at Hyakunin Isshu again from the beginning.
The historical picture scroll of the dynasty is unraveled, and the boring 100 poems come to life, and you will definitely find it interesting.
