Ogura Hyakunin Isshu is an anthology of 100 Japanese waka poems written by 100 different poets, literally in the West would translate as "The poems of hundred poets." Waka is a Japanese poetic form dating back to the seventh century in 31 syllables divided into five lines of 5-7-5-7-7 syllables respectively.

They are short compositions of five verses each and only 31 syllables, inspired mostly by love, nature and the seasons. The contents are rich in symbolism and help to better understand the philosophy and Eastern thought.

The best known of these poems is Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, compiled by Fujiwara no Teika (1162-1241) while living in the Ogura district, Sagano, Kyoto.

The program requires CODEPAGE 932 to be readable to those who know the Japanese language.

Since the English version contains only the phonetic translation of the poems, which still must be read and heard in their mother tongue, those interested in translating the actual content can surely contact the author.
