We discovered, right in the heart of Katikati township, a delightful park on the banks of the Uretara Stream containing a number of boulders etched with short poems: Haiku. This apparently the largest collection of Haiku outside Japan.
The setting is delightful with the stream, mature trees, paths and seats plus these wonderful thoughtful poems, making it the perfect spot for a quiet, relaxing stroll while reflecting on the poetry. Some will make you smile and one that caught my attention especially on sunny September day with people out fishing on the stream for the elusive whitebait:
“Whitebait season ..
Fishermen fritter away the day”
