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.

For an explanation of the sections of the topical dictionary and for suggestions on how to navigate the dictionary, please see the help file.
