A waka walk through Nitobe Memorial Garden

Welcome to an audio introduction to a selection of poems composed in premodern Japan read through sites found in Nitobe Memorial Garden at the University of British Columbia (UBC). This listening series was produced by students enrolled in a Japanese Women’s Self-Writing course with Dr. Christina Laffin in the Department of Asian Studies.

The Department of Asian Studies and the campus of the Vancouver campus of UBC is located on traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) First Nation.
