Ishigaki Rin ( , February 21, 1920 – December 26, 2004) was a Japanese poet. Her motifs were pots, the nameplate on the house, and those things people find in their daily life. Instead of using complicated words, she wrote with simple words and compositions. Her poetry was based on common sense. Her words were the consciousness of a single female person in both the home and in society, as a working woman and an ordinary woman who engaged in housekeeping after work. Her attitude toward other individuals and society was unaggressive, but always allowed them to keep their dignity as individuals. Some of her poems are used in textbooks on the Japanese-language and she is therefore one of best-known contemporary poets in Japan.
