Famous poets traveling to new locations to test their ability

I remember reading somewhere that some famous, ancient (?) Japanese (?) poets liked to travel to new places where they were not yet well-known, in order to test their abilities and attempt to re-establish themselves as talented poets. Does this ring any bells? Do you know of any sources that talk about such a thing? Any examples of such poets? Anything similar in a field other than poetry?

Where should we go in Japan (~ central Honshu) to get out of the city and do some hiking?

Where do you recommend to get out of the cities and see some nature/countryside in Japan? We'd love to hike, and spend some time soaking in outdoor hot springs. We've looked at the Japanese Alps as well as the area around Hakone, but we're having trouble sorting through the options, and a bit nervous about the guidebook references to "hoards of day-trippers." Help us focus? Any recommendations for towns, specific hiking trails or hotels? [more inside]

Sex workers in Osaka

Sex workers in Osaka. 5,6 years ago, a friend took me thru a small, singular neighborhood in Osaka, Japan. Rumored to be controlled by Yakuza, it was an area for sex. The ground floor of the buildings were open to the street, and the 'girl' was sitting, almost enthroned, on a chair or platform surrounded by flowers and cushions. I guess the protocol was to 'shop' the street, and enter the one that appealed to you. We did not tarry, despite my fascination, because my Japanese friend was female, w/ her hair tucked up, and she felt a need to keep moving. She had explained that the city wanted to raze the area as some kind of urban renewal. I wanted to get some Japanese friends to talk to some locals, and find a way to document this unique place, but that never happened. Does anyone know of this? And what eventually happened?
