Summary of BENIBANA:

Isabella Bird (1831-1902), an English explorer, arrived in Japan in 1878, and headed north to Yamagata prefecture, searching for the real Japan. She ended up writing ”Unbeaten Tracks in Japan”. In Yamagata prefecture, BENIBANA (safflower) cultivation reached its peak during the Edo era. In this dramatic poem, the following characters appear: Basho, who is inspired by this flower to compose a haiku; a courtesan who used to wear a luxurious kimono costume coloured with safflower dyes; as well as Yukio Nakagawa, an Ikebana artist. These characters called ”Benibana People”, mark the passage of time every hundred years since the 17th century. The safflower bears their immortal message.
