Contemprary Tanka Poet Mariko Kitakubo. Article details.

I donated "DISTANCE" to Hiiragiya's International Library Salon

I donated a copy of DISTANCE, which Deborah and I co-authored, to the International Library Salon of Hiiragiya Ryokan, a long-established Japanese inn that has been in business since 1818.

It is the third book I have donated, following INDIGO and Rattle 47, which I donated three years ago.

It was a great pleasure to meet Ms. Nishimura, the proprietress, and hand over the book to her in person.

I sincerely appreciate to Ms. Nishimura for her willingness to accept the book and to Mr. Nakamura for acting as a bridge between the two.
