Tani Buncho | Painting


A painting by Tani Buncho with poems written by Maeda Natsukage. The beautiful mounting was painted by Maeda Unto (1746 - 1833).


Blowing wind, snow falls in the valley
In the late night, I scent the transparent moonlight



Ages accumulate on me, every year
Can you empathize, the moon on the mountain

(Unknown poet)


Since so far, I am longing for the clear sky
It is because of the moon



Although moonlight falls modestly, 
It illuminates the hearty offering
