(Oh now I got confused by the japanes way of counting 'word sounds' rather than syllables... Fe-lo-ting Ne-ow...
- and counted that way ONLY in the first line, hahah oh fun and random, sorry)
Japanese Haiku counts `on' sound, which is somewhat equivalent to syllables in English.
They use 5-7-5 rules with 'on' sound.
Nonetheless, we are talking about two extremely different languages.
Btw, I know nothing about Japanese except how to say Thank you.
But I trust Google search.
