Born in the Hashizu area of Yurihama, Zoroku Danno was not only a school teacher, but also one of the San’in region’s leading authorities on Chinese poetry. Through these roles, he dedicated his life to the education of his hometown’s youth as well as to the enrichment of the region’s culture. He was a teacher in Hashizu Elementary School from 1884 before becoming the principal for Uno Elementary School in 1912. Without losing any of his passion for Chinese poetry, he would often hold poetry events on the shores of Lake Togo for the entire San’in Region
