Contemprary Tanka Poet Mariko Kitakubo. Article details.

My anthology "INDIGO" is housed in Hiiragiya English Library salon

It is my great honor that "INDIGO", my anthology published by the U.S. Shabda Press in Spring, 2016, is recommended to and accepted by Hiiragiya English Library Salon. Hiiragiya is a long-established Japanese hotel in Kyoto with 202 years history.
I would like to thank Mr. Masashi Nakamura for paying attention to my anthologies as well as my activities.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude toward Hiiragiya Ryokan for sending me beautiful bookmarks as a token of appreciation for my complementary books.


The sent of the bookmarks remindes me of the eletance of Kyoto. I displayed them in my glass shelf so that I can see them anytime.
