Lonely Planet review

This memorial museum celebrates the life and work of Matsuyama-born poet Masaoka Shiki (1867-1902), as well as the history of Matsuyama. Shiki initiated the reform of haiku and tanka (two forms of traditional poetry), and influenced a generation of poets after him. The museum has some English-language signage but also offers English-speaking guides with advance reservations.
