It was the organ of the Shinshisha ("New Poetry Society") founded in 1899 by Yosano Tekkan (who became editor-in-chief and who later revived the magazine after it first went defunct in 1908).

Famous contributors included Yosano Akiko, Hagiwara Sakutaro, Ishikawa Takuboku, Iwano Homei, Kitahara Hakushu, Noguchi Yonejiro, Kinoshita Rigen, and Sato Haruo.
