Nozawa Bonchō

Nozawa Bonchō (野沢 凡兆?, 1640 - 1714) was a Japanese haikai poet.[1] He was born in Kanazawa, and spent most of his life in Kyoto working as a doctor. Bonchō was one of Matsuo Bashō's leading disciples and, together with Kyorai, he edited the Bashō school's Monkey's Raincoat (Sarumino) anthology of 1689.[2] He participated in numerous renku with Bashō and other members of his Shōmon school.

A famous hokku by Bonchō:

the smells of things…
summer moon
