KaDo Ottawa is a group of poets who meet four times a year to share work, and to learn more about haiku and Japanese-related forms. KaDo has promoted the creation and appreciation of these forms since 2001. Each year we publish members’ poems in a broadsheet. It has become tradition to present the broadsheet at a spring meeting at the Japanese Embassy. Our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Toshi Yonehara for making this possible. We welcome Chisa Takiguchi as a new Embassy member.
