Praise

“Sports is the art of the human condition, trained to physical and mental perfection. Haiku is the refined art of language, polished to pursue the ultimate cosmos. The symphony of sports and haiku in this book will lead readers to a new way of understanding the world.”
—Masako Kakutani, Board of Directors for the Society of Haiku Poets, and the Haiku International Association
 
“[Nagamura’s] eye, that of a poet and photographer, has celebrated athletic events with splendid examples of ‘the haiku moment.’ This book will surely give you a new view of the haiku world—dynamic, youthful, and full of power.
—Marie Mariya, Executive committee member of the Haiku International Association, and a member of the Association of Haiku Poets
 
“Fresh, insightful and often surprisingly humorous, Nagamura’s haiku skillfully capture the essence of each sports…Although the Tokyo 2020 Olympics has now been postponed, this collection of sports haiku remains a winner.”
—Louise George Kittaka, The Japan Times
