Known to carry large wicker baskets filled with tea utensils through the streets and surrounding hills of Japans capital, Baisao set up shop wherever he ended up and brewed tea for those who came to enjoy the scenery with him. Establishing a quiet, simple life, Baisao spent his final years composing poetry, brewing tea, and teaching Zen, in the process becoming a well-loved figure.

These poems, memoirs, and letters tell us more about this endearing person and trace his long lifes profound spiritual journey. This comprehensive translation includes nearly all of Baisaos writings, giving us a deep look at this remarkable man.
