This chapter focuses on Shimazaki Tōson's time in Sendai during the period 1896–1898. It begins with a background on Sendai and its place in Japanese culture and proceeds by discussing Tōson's arrival in Sendai. It then considers Tōson's teaching duties at Tōhoku Gakuin, the death of his mother Shimazaki Nui, his reflections on the Kiso Road, and examples of his poetry, including Young Herbs, Hitohabune (Leaf Boat), and Natsugusa (Summer Grasses). It also recounts Tōson's resignation from Tōhoku Gakuin and his return to Tokyo in July 1897. Finally, it looks at Tōson's first piece of prose fiction, the novella “Utatane” (The Nap); the foldup of Bungakkai; and Tōson's travel to Fukushima.
