The haiku presented in this ebook were selected from the following poets:

Kobayashi Issa (1763-1828) is considered to be one of the four great masters of haiku in addition to Basho, Buson, and Shiki and rivals Basho in popularity. He wrote over 20,000 haiku. "issa" means "one (cup of) tea." This haiku is one of his most famous in Japan.

Yosa Buson (1716-1783) is one of the four great masters of haiku. The others are Basho, Issa, and Shiki. This poem was published in 1762 and is one of his most famous.

Takahama Kyoshi (1874-1959) a Japanese poet from Kanagawa Japan. He continued with the traditional style of haiku using kigo (seasonal words or phrases). He wrote some 40,000 to 50,000 haiku in his lifetime.

Ozaki Housai (1885-1926), as this haiku suggests, was highly influenced and was an influencing factor in the modern free verse style of haiku. An alcoholic throughout most of his life, his poems tend to emphasize loneliness as this one in particular does.

Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902) was the pen-name of Masaoka Noboru. He is considered to be one of the four great masters of haiku in addition to Basho, Buson, and Issa. Shiki managed to revive and strengthen interest in haiku for modern Japan.

And the most famous Japanese poet of all time...

Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) is undoubtedly the most famous of the classical haiku poets. His mastery of haiku and his wanderings around Japan are attested by the many monuments with his poems. His most famous collection of poems and writings is called, "Oku no Hosomichi." It was written while on a long journey in Edo Japan in the spring of 1689. Today many people trace his footsteps for themselves.

Quality content with really helpful explanations

Firstly, I'm glad the dialogues feel like conversations I would actually have. That makes it so much easier to relate to and remember.

Secondly, the explanations about appropriate politeness level are really helpful and put the different ways of saying things in context. I also like that the books tell you if a word or phrase is very common.

Last but definitely not least, I am impressed by the quality of these books. This isn't the first bundle by Clay & Yumi Boutwell that I've purchased and I will certainly buy more in the future. The content is consistently great. Even the files are well thought out with three different formats included for each book.

More Hello Kitty

What can I say? I am obsessed with Hello Kitty and these items have found a happy home :-)!!!

Amazing

I've been searching for beginner-intermediate Japanese books and graciously came across this bundle (thanks fb). It offers more than just a simple read with crackdown explanation sentence-by-sentence which is extremely helpful. I began to notice myself picking up the pace and the ability to understand without reading the explanation.

TL;DR : Worth it for beginners. Take advantage of the price before it goes off!

I wish there are more books like these to read, and I will purchase other bundles in the future. ありがとうございます。

Excellent ro start your learning experience!

A must read to pick up on the correct way to pronounce and write hiragana with tips for easy memory work and follow up. Greatly recommended!

Excellent listening practice

The vocabulary package is worth the price of entry alone. The pronunciation is so precise, and clear.
