PROFILE

根っからのお人好しで「僕は平気!」と言って、自分よりもみんなが幸せになることを願う少年。天真爛漫さが目立つがベジタリアンであったり、大人の絵本と称して春画を大量に所持していたりと意外にもませているところがある。そのためか考え方を押し付ける支配的な大人には反発心を持っているようだ。

As a boy who is a people-person at heart, he always says "I'm fine!" and wishes for others' happiness over his own. He stands out for his innocence, but he has a surprisingly precocious side as evidenced by some things such as being a vegetarian and owning an overwhelming amount of erotic prints while claiming them to be adult picture books. Maybe for that reason, he is contrary towards domineering adults who push their way of thinking on others.



Trivia


  • He was born in 1896 in a merchant family, during a time when class was very important even in modern Japan. Because the Miyazawa family was viewed with distrust and envy by the surrounding farmers, it was both a blessing and a curse to Kenji. All his life, he struggled to come to terms with the disparity between his own circumstances and those of the poorer farmers.
  • As a young boy, Kenji was an avid rock collector. Later on, he was enrolled in Morioka Agriculture and Forestry Higher School (an equivalent of graduate school), which gained him an education in soil science. He was nicknamed "Rocking Ken" precisely for his love of rocks.
  • He quarreled with his father often over his future. Kenji was to inherit the family pawn shop, but he knew the business was not for him. His father would not agreed to anything else, however, until one day he hopped on a train to Tokyo to follow his religious calling. It was during this time that he wrote many of his children's stories, sometimes three thousand manuscript pages per month. His stay was short-lived, however, as he was recalled back home because of the deterioration of his sister's health.
  • Although Kenji is most famous for his free verse and children's stories, he wrote thirty-one syllable tankas for nearly ten years of his life, first out of admiration for Ishikawa Takuboku and Kitahara Hakushuu, and later for a literary magazine in college.
