Description

Novelist and essayist. She studied at Haginoya, Nakajima Utako’s poetry school.

Next year she graduated from the Tokyo Women’s Normal School (later, Ochanomizu University) and married the philosopher Miyake Setsurei. She later published Tsuyu no Yosuga (Shelter of Dew) and Hagi Kikyo (Clovers and Bellflowers), both in 1895.
