Tanka...Kakunodate in winter / 冬の角館


寒ほどけ芽吹き初めにし桜見る雪の間に間の武家屋敷通り

the cold abating
I see cherry trees 
budding a bit
a day between snowfalls
Samurai Residence Street

※秋田県仙北市角館町は武家屋敷通りがあり、
東北の小京都といわれていますが、桜の名所でもあります。
寒波の合間の晴れた日に、冬の角館を見たいと思い
角館に行ってみました。
そして、武家屋敷通りを散策し桜がほんの少しだけですが、
芽吹いているのを見て嬉しくなり詠いました。

Kakunodate-machi, Senboku City, Akita Prefecture, Japan is
called " the Little Kyoto of Tohoku (Northeast Japan)" It is well known as Samurai Residence Street.
Furthermore it is famous for cherry trees in spring
and autumn colors in fall on the street. I would like to see Kakunodate in winter
and I did when it was fine. I was glad to be able to see
cherry trees started budding a bit there and I transposed this into tanka.

between seasons
