HIROAKI SATO ~







click onto the image to increase your reading pleasure






Hiroaki Sato has been writing for The Japan Times since 2000. It's not to be beat. I'm showcasing here an article two years old this month, but being the US military and expenditures, it remains timely.

On the Spring Equinox Longhouse will issue a two booklet set of Hiroaki Sato's translations of Miyazawa Kenji. He has been called by Gary Snyder, "perhaps the finest translator of contemporary Japanese poetry into American English."
