The Tree of Friendship by Andrew Blitman
(22 February 1874 – 8 April 1959)
A Japanese poet active during the Shōwa period of Japan.
Kyoshi was a pen name given to him by his mentor, Masaoka Shiki.
While working as an editor of a lit mag, he also submitted variants on haiku poetry, experimenting with irregular numbers of syllables.
In 1908, Kyoshi began a full-length novel, Haikaishi ("The Haiku Master"), which appeared in newspapers in serialized form.
