Fumiko Hayashi (Kuhi) - (A stone monument inscribed with a haiku by Fumiko Hayashi)

“Tabi-ni-Nete, Nobinobi-to-Miru, Makura-Kana. 26th day, in Hakuchi” This haiku was composed by the authoress, Fumiko Hayashi who wrote the famous “Hourou-ki” (Wanderer) when she stayed at the inn in Hakuchi in 1941. She enjoyed her stay here and got on very well with then owner's uncle. It is well known that the heroes in two novels were modeled on him. This stone tablet, inscribed with a haiku composed by Fumiko Hayashi, was erected in honor of her.
