JPN49, Vancouver’s biggest Japanese Canadian Poetry event, returns this fall.

This annual event weaves together Japan and Canada through poetry and story telling as each year local Japanese poet Soramaru Takayama welcomes a new visiting Japanese poet.

This year’s visiting poet, Mizuki Misumi, is the youngest recipient of Japan’s prestigious Sakutaro Hagiwara Award.

Soramaru, who blends his poetry readings with theatre movement, has invited local Japanese taiko & shakuhaci player, Minoru Yamamoto to add new dimensions to Sora’s already multilayered poetry world.

These two talented poets create a show like you’ve never seen before!
