Having returned to Seoul in , Blyth remarried in , to a Japanese woman named Kijima Tomiko [3] , with whom he later had two daughters, Nana Blyth and Harumi Blyth. Although he expressed his sympathy for Japan and sought Japanese citizenship , this was denied.

During his internment his extensive library was destroyed in an air raid. In the internment camp in Kobe he finished his first book Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics and wrote parts of his books about haiku and senryu. After the war, Blyth worked diligently with the authorities, both Japanese and American, to ease the transition to peace. Together, they helped draft the declaration [4] Ningen Sengen , by which Emperor Hirohito declared himself to be a human being, and not divine.

By , Blyth had become Professor of English at Gakushuin University , and became private tutor to the Crown Prince later emperor Akihito until the end of his [Blyth's] life. Blyth died in , probably of a brain tumour and complications from pneumonia , in the Seiroka Hospital in Tokyo. He wrote six books on Haiku —52, —64 and two books on Senryu , , four books on Humour in Asian and English Literature , a , b , , as well as seven books on Zen , , —64; posthumous , Further publications include studies of English Literature , , b and a three fifth shortened version of 'A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers' by his favourite author Henry David Thoreau , along with an introduction and explanatory notes.

The actual 5-volume 'Zen and Zen Classics' series is a modification by the publishers, caused by the unexpected death of Blyth, of the originally planned 8-volume project, which included a translation of the Hekiganroku Piyenchi , a History of Korean Zen and of Japanese Zen Dogen, Hakuin etc. According to D. Suzuki the Zen-Series should have been "the most complete work on Zen to be presented so far to the English-reading public".

In an autobiographical note Blyth writes: "By a fortunate chance I then came across haiku, or to speak more exactly Haiku no Michi, the Way of Haiku, which is the purely poetical non-emotional, non-intellectual, non-moral, non-aesthetic life in relation to nature. Next, the biggest bit of luck of all, Zen, through the books of Suzuki Daisetz Last but not least there appeared senryu, which might well be dignified by the term Senryu no Michi, the Way of Senryu, for it is an understanding of all things by laughing and smiling at them, and this means forgiving all things, ourselves and God included".

After early imagist interest in haiku the genre drew less attention in English, until after World War II, with the appearance of a number of influential volumes about Japanese haiku. In , with the publication in Japan of the first volume of Haiku , Blyth's four-volume work, haiku was introduced to the post-war Western world. His Haiku series —52 was dealing mostly with pre-modern haiku, though including Shiki ; later followed his two-volume History of Haiku — Present-day attitudes to Blyth's work vary: On the one hand, he is appreciated as a populariser of Japanese culture; on the other, his portrayals of haiku and Zen have sometimes been criticised as one-dimensional.

Many contemporary Western writers of haiku were introduced to the genre through his Zen-based haiku explanations. Salinger " Blyth was on them. Blyth is sometimes perilous, naturally, since he's a highhanded old poem himself, but he's also sublime" [29] and E. Hackett born , Eric Amann, William J. Some noted Blyth's distaste for haiku on more modern themes, some his strong bias regarding a direct connection between haiku and Zen [32] , a connection largely ignored by modern Japanese poets.

In the chapter 'Women Haiku Writers' Blyth writes: "Haiku for women, like Zen for women, - this subject makes us once more think about what haiku are, and a woman is…Women are said to be intuitive, and as they cannot think, we may hope this is so, but intuition…is not enough… [it] is doubtfull Although Blyth did not foresee the appearance of original haiku in languages other than Japanese when he began writing on the topic, and although he founded no school of verse, his works stimulated the writing of haiku in English. At the end of the second volume of his History of Haiku , he remarked that "The latest development in the history of haiku is one which nobody foresaw Also, it is a minute taxi ride from Osaka Airport.
