People around the world are fascinated by haiku—so much can be expressed by so few words—but not many outside Japan can enjoy Japanese haiku in its original form. Even the most famous classical Japanese haiku poet, Basho, is accessible to most people only in translation. While good translations capture the core meaning of the words, nuance and aspects of Japanese culture are not so easily translated.
