.. .. .. .. .. .. .. List of kigo used by Issa

The first Kobayashi Issa website was launched in May, 2000 by David Lanoue.
It was created at Xavier University of Louisiana as a rich media project sponsored by the Center for the Advancement of Teaching. In August 2005, with the onslaught of Hurricane Katrina, the university server that housed the Issa archive had to be shut down.
The present website is the archive's new, permanent home.
