GSIS IX: 514

When Lord [Minamoto no] Tameyoshi was posted to Mikawa as Governor, the party dismounted at the crossing of Sunomata, and while gazing at Misaka in Shinano, Nôin composed this.


sirakumo no
uFe yori miyuru
asiFiki no
yama no takane ya
misaka naruran
Clouds of white:
Above them one sees,
A high mountain peak:
Misaka, I’d say.

The Monk Nōin
