  • In 1899, Nobel Prize-winning author Yasunari Kawabata was born here. One of the artists at the top of modern Japanese literature from Taisho to Showa, his masterpieces include dancers and snowcountry. I also attended yoshinaga Koyuri's birthday and had deep exchanges with Fumiko Hayashi and Yukio Mishima.

  • It was a short stone monument though it was elaborate lye though it was a little east on the road in front of the main gate of Osaka Tenmangu Shrine. I didn't know you were from Osaka.
