門司港レトロエリア 歴史・史跡 / 観る・遊ぶ
(日本語) 門司の歴史と美を謳った句で知られる高浜虚子の碑

This monument is inscribed with a representative haiku by Takahama Kyoshi (February 22, 1874–April 8, 1959), a leading haiku poet who was active from the Meiji era to the early Showa era.

The monument was erected in 1956 in the precincts of about-1800-year-old Mekari-jinja Shrine, located at the northern edge of Kyushu.

Because Takahama Kyoshi often visited the City of Kitakyushu and composed haiku about Moji, this place was selected as the site of the monument.

The monument has an inscription of a haiku: Natsushio no / ima hiku / Heike horobu toki mo (The summer tide / is now ebbing / just as when the Taira clan fell).
