"Shoto Shiso" is the collection of Chinese-style poems by KAKIZAKI Tomoshige (pen name of Shoto, hereafter Shoto), who married Sono, the granddaughter of KAKIZAKI Hakyo (1764-1826) , famous artist and retainer to Matsumae clan, and set up a new Kakizaki family. 303 Shoto’s poems have been recorded from the 6th year of Tenpo (1835) to the 2nd year of Keio (1866). Until now, not all of the works have been read through and put into print. In this paper, we will attempt to transcribe, explain the vocabulary and translate the "Shoto Shiso" into modern language , yet unknown throughout the world.
