Manyoshu Best 100 Compiler's note: Man'yoshu ("Collection of Ten Thousand Leaves") is the earliest extant collection of Japanese poetry. Most of its 4,516 numbered waka (or "Japanese poems") in 20 volumes were written in the 7th and 8th centuries. For a brief description of the Man'yōshū, see: Manyoshu in WIKIPEDIA, The Free Encylopedia. An electronic online version of the complete text of the Man'yōshū is available at Japanese Text Initiative. The one hundred poems presented in these web pages are what I consider some of the best pieces in this classical anthology. For each poem, I have provided brief Explanations (解説) which are rather elementary guides, in both English and Japanese, for intermediate- and advanced-level (non-Japanese-speaking) students for interpreting these ancient poems, some of which are difficult even for today's educated Japanese.
