A Tribute to Matsuo Basho

Born in Iga, Matsuo Basho was a famous traveler and poet. Built around 80 years ago, in honor of the 300th anniversary of his birth, the Haisenden is a beautiful tribute to his memory. The circular roof is called the "traveler's umbrella" and the rest of the building is said to resemble his face and clothes. It's a fantastic example of traditional Japanese architecture built in the modern era.
