May 5th, I performed tanka reading in Traben-Trarbach, Germany

It was my first tanka-reading presentation (with German translation) in Germany. Traben-Trarbach turned out to be the 39th city where I performed reading overseas.

Mr. Stefan Wolfshutz, a member of German Haiku Association, introduced me to the audience.

When I received comments from the audiene saying they were impressed with my performance, I felt relieved, and was very happy at the same time.

Owing for Ms. Ono's much efforts, this bilingual Japanese-German tanka collection selected by Mr. Yukitsuna Sasaki has completed.

I also performed reading 10 pieces of tanka from this book.

I have got along very well with Ms. Masami Ono-Feller, who completed a huge project of compiling Japanese-German version tanka collection.
