Could you please correct what I've written below?
------------------------------------------------


Sagano in Kyoto has been loved for its scenic beauty among the noble and cultured people since anicient times.

There is beautiful rural scenery, and the Rakushisha, a little hermitage, stands as if it fades into the scenery.

Kyorai Mukai, a favorite pupil of Bashou Matsuo (a world-famous poet), lived in the hermitage.

The appearance of the hermitage was so modest. Bashou Matsuo loved the hermitage, so he visited and stayed long there three times in his life and roamed many famous places and temples in Saga and Arashiyama, Kyoto. He left many poems about Saga and Arashiyama, so the Rakushisha is still loved among many cultured people as a school for poems.


This piece is the Rakushisha painting by Takayoshi Satou. He expresses the modest appearance of the hermitage with delicate brushwork and light and mild sumi ink colour. It seems that Takayoshi Satou fully feels world view of Bashou Matsuo and Kyorai Mukai.

A straw raincoat and a straw hat are hung on the Rakushisha entrance as a symbol of the hermitage now. In this work, they are depicted with light gold painting. This sophisticated expression by Takayoshi Satou has a mysterious aura somewhat. We can almost feel as if Kyorai Mukai, the master of the hermitage, live in it even now.
