The NHK National Tanka Contest was held at the NHK Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo, to introduce excellent works submitted by tanka lovers nationwide.
The NHK and NHK Gakuen's annual tournament received over 33,000 heads in general and junior high school and lower.
Of these, three tanka from the general department were selected for the grand prize. A work by Hisae Yoshida (70) in Tokyo, "If you walk with a friend of an agricultural college student, the flowers that bloom on the bank get one after another." When you walk with a friend who has been learning for many years as an auditor at Tokyo University of Agriculture, It was a tribute to the name that was called one after another, and the lively scenery that captured freshness and joy was appreciated.
Soeda Oyama (59) of Tokyo also wrote, "You can touch your finger on the dents of the remnant whetstone from Chichinomi's father."
He noticed that there was a hollow in the whetstone that he had taken out to sharpen the knife, which was the role of his deceased father, and he was praised for his quiet loneliness as well as his father's living witness.
And "Miyako Takizawa (73)" of Niigata Prefecture wrote "Chisaki old bookstores on the lake floor where the smell of paper deepens on rainy days" is a used bookstore stopped in Asakusa, Tokyo. It was a representation of the situation, and the point that it captured the unique smell and put it together in a metaphor called "Yana at the bottom of the lake" was appreciated.
The event will be broadcast on E-Tele at 3:00 pm on the 8th of next month.
