Come and write haiku in the beautiful setting of a Japanese garden overlooking the Firth of Forth.


Just 3 lines long, haiku are simple to write, but capable of great variety – humour, emotion, even storytelling. We’ll use poems by the great Japanese poet Yosa Buson, born 300 years ago this year, as starting points for our own writing – as well as the inspirational surroundings.

Suitable for all ages (under 12s if accompanied by an adult). Please dress for the weather. Ken Cockburn is a poet, who blogged about the Japanese garden over the course of a year.
