Iwaya Sazanami grew up in a wealthy family. His father moved quickly through the ranks of the government and into the House of Lords. Iwaya-san was expected to study to become a doctor like much of the rest of the men in his family, but his brother Iwaya Ryutaro, a prominent metallurgist, sent him a copy of a book of fairy tales from Germany, where he was studying. The ten year-old was expected to use it to help himself learn German and then study medicine in Germany, however, the book captured the imagination of the boy and he became determined to be a writer. His determination and hard work led him to much success with his original material, as well as new interpretations of Japanese folk classics such as “Momotaro” and “Hanasaka Jiisan“. The rough translation of this haiku is a melancholic reflection on a gentle breeze through the pines around a solitary house. One of his masterpieces of calligraphy held in the The Museum Of Shige Prefecture can be see here. The last two pictures are of pieces held in private collections in Japan. Good condition. Slight foxing and small stains on the honshi (main painted area), -otherwise in good, strong condition. *Please click the arrow on the upper left corner of the pictures to expand them.
