Kakinomoto no Hitomaro

Kakinomoto no Hitomaro (柿本人麻呂 or 柿本人麿; c. 662 – 710) was a Japanese poet and aristocrat of the late Asuka period. He was the most prominent of the poets included in the Man'yōshū, and was particularly represented in volumes 1 and 2. In Japan, he is considered one of the Thirty-six Poetry Immortals. After the Heian period he was often called "Hito-maru" (人丸).
