Ki no Tomonori

Ki no Tomonori (?850-?904) was a kinsman of Ki no Tsurayuki and together with him one of the compilers of the Kokinshû. He achieved a degree of success at court, but died before the completion of Kokinshû, as the anthology contains a poem by Tsurayuki mourning his death. He is, perhaps, best known now for his seasonal poems.

In the Japan 2001 Waka, the following poems are by Tomonori:
