      Issa

      my version

      into scattering cherry blossoms
      a pilgrim's stamp book and
      a secret Buddha statue


      Tr. by David Lanoue:

      into the scattering blooms
      pilgrims
      and Buddha


      Here is more on the kaichoo explanation
      http://haikutopics.blogspot.com/2006/05/hibutsu-secret-statue.html


      This haiku seems rather difficult to translate without a lot of explanation
      about the two words,
      junreichoo and kaichoo.
