Uwagi Kiyonari, poet born in Takayama as the eldest son of Uwagi Shigesato, patriarch owner of an old sake brewing family. Good-natured and diligent at his work, he also developed his interest in the arts, having loved poetry since he was a child. He studied the classical poetry of the Man’yo-shu (a Heian period collection of poems, lit. collection of myriad leaves) under Tanaka Okihide (1776-1847), using the scholarly name Wabunsha (lit. Japan literature specialist). In 1860, during the Man’en era, he passed the patrimony of the family to his first son. In retirement he took the name Haruo and led a gracious life until his death. He devoted himself to pursuits such as Chinese poetry, kemarian (ancient game of kickball, dating at least to the Heian court), tea, incense and shogi (a Japanese board game similar to chess). It is said that he brought modern culture to Hida (another name for the town of Takayama). In the third year of the Bunkyu era (1863), he died at the age of 66 with many pupils at his side. His work included two books Man’yo-shu Seii no Giori (15 vols.) and Uta Shu (11 vols.).

The poem reads:
"Since the Age of the Gods, there have been hundreds upon thousands of trees in this land ruled by the Emperor. Many bloom only modestly, but the fragrance of the cherry blossoms is always excellent. The cloud covered peaks and snow covered forests are so grand, and yet still missing these cherry blossoms – marvelous in daylight, even more beautiful at night. There is nothing more exquisite."
