Classical Chinese poetry

Classical Chinese poetry was created in Japan using the poetry style developed during the the Han dynasty.
 
In the 8th century, nobles and officers of the Japanese Court needed to learn classical Chinese poetry, because it was considered one of the requisites for well-educated people.
 
In 751 AD, a poetry anthology Kaifuso was compiled based on the writings of the Japanese Imperial Court. This is the oldest extant anthology of classical Chinese poetry compiled in Japan.
 
The anthology contains classical Chinese poetry created by Ootomono-miko prince, Otsuno-miko prince and Nagaya-o who was a grandson of the Tenmu Emperor in the late 7th century.
 
In the 8th century, Omi-no-Mifune who was a relative of the Emperor, and a nobleman, Isonokami-no-Yakatsugu, were known as excellent creators of classical Chinese poetry.
