Haiku poetry: “Japan”

I recently returned from an amazing journey to Japan and to start off have some general impression haiku.

***

Japan Haiku

 

A rich history

With geisha and samurai

Owe much to China

 

Conflicts in the past

War partners with Germany

Now they promote peace

 

Nature much varied

Cedar, bamboo and mountains

Whiz by train windows

 

A land of contrasts

With castles and old temples

And Tokyo maid cafes
