Ota Nampo (Nanpo) (a.k.a. Shokusanjin) was the most influential bunjin, calligrapher, poet and writer of the late 18th cent and early 19th cent. Shokusanjin worked together with for example Hokusai, Eishi, Utamaro, Toyokuni I, and numerous other ukiyo-e artists, as well as artists from other schools. It is very difficult to find an original painting by Ota Nampo, less then 10 are recorded.
The poem has no yet been read and translated.
