[Waka Mania (Part 2)] Differences between Waka and Tanka ~The Heart of Songs~

What's the difference between the same 31 characters? This time, I will talk about the difference between the ``heart of the song'' in waka and tanka. Tanka is the counterculture of waka! A showdown between Shiki Masaoka and Tsurayuki Ki. I compared waka and tanka using actual songs. Can you even tell the difference? Waka is the source of Japanese culture, and it is by no means a boring subject to memorize! I'll have fun mixing it with Ucchi's speculations (delusions). Don't miss the sharp thrusts and wonderful voice of "Japacal Instructor" Rocco.

Learn the basics of waka poetry and try reciting it!

We are holding a "Utajuku" with the goal of learning from representative classical works and being able to compose traditional "Waka" on an individual basis!
