Naoshi Koriyama (郡山 直, Kōriyama Naoshi, born 1926) is a Japanese poet. Born in Kikai Island, Kagoshima Prefecture, he first attended the University of New Mexico. He graduated from the New York State College for Teachers at Albany in 1954 and returned to Japan to teach and write poetry. His interest in poetry came from using it as a tool to combat his feelings of loneliness when he transferred from New Mexico to Albany in 1951.It is true.[1] From 1967 until 1997, he was a professor at Toyo University and holds the title of professor emeritus.[2][3] He has published nine collections in English, three from Japanese to English, and in 2011, he published his first volume entirely in Japanese.
