Jingū-senpai-narabini-kinrai-kokugakunin-kashū (henceforth referred to as Kashū) is a poetry collection compiled by Nakagawa-Tsunetada and reprinted in another collection Seisho-shū. It consists of 1,566 poems by classical literature scholars and Shinto priests, 366 out of which are “chōka” poems. Interestingly 96 out of these 366 poems are borrowed from Yasoura-no-tama, a poetry collection edited by Motoori-Ōhira. In addition to them many other songs by Motoori are also selected; they totally account for about 60% of the whole “chōka” poems in Kashū. Obviously Nakagawa held Motoori in such high esteem that, while trying to make his original collection, eventually he couldn’t resist Motoori’s poetical influence to the extent of including a great number of his poems in it.
