Personal excerpt from Teika Meigetsuki

Even though I wanted to read Teika's diary, ``Meigetsuki,'' I couldn't find a suitable book.
Even if you can find it, it's only for experts, and it's a long diary that covers 50 years.
Meanwhile, I found this ``Teika Meigetsuki Private Sho'' (written by Yoshie Hotta).
Honestly speaking, there is no other book quite like this!
It depicts not only Teika's personality but also the culture and society of the era in which he lived.
It feels like a treasure trove of knowledge.
This book is a must-read for anyone interested not only in Teika but also in medieval Japan.
