Ôshima Nan’yô from Tokushima visited the Kansai area and asked famous people for a painting or
calligraphy. He compiled them into a book to take home to rejoy the mountains and fresh streams in east
and west. I named it: "The moon obtained", a horizontal calligraphy which i gaveto Nan’yô. When he returns
home he can enjoy the landscape scenes while drinking good tea. Can one imagine a greater pleasure than
enjoying this work!
