The Japanese Haiku Topical Dictionary is a work-in-progress based on the Nyūmon Saijiki by the Museum of Haiku Literature in Tokyo. Like other Japanese saijiki, the Nyūmon Saijiki is a compilation of the major kidai (seasonal topics) and kigo (seasonal words) in traditional and modern Japanese haiku.
