In the Japanese literature, poetry has its own type and form, includingÂ HaikuÂ andÂ SenryuÂ with 5-7-5 syllabic structure. Another prominent characteristic of Haiku is the topic concerning beauty of nature and the elements likeÂ KigoÂ orÂ Kisetsu no KotobaÂ (the words marking the seasons) in which it shows the closeness of Japanese people with nature. SenryuÂ has humorous and witty elements, including satire and the story about people; it does not describe season at all. Therefore, cultural background and social condition of society will affect content and form of the satire. This research aims to analyze the form ofÂ kigoÂ inÂ haikuÂ and the content of satire inÂ senryu, written by students of Japanese Literature in Brawijaya University. This research used qualitative descriptive methodology. The research shows the result thatÂ kigo ameÂ andÂ kigo taiyouÂ are the most frequently used forms.Â Â InÂ senryu, the contents of satire are love, student life, and physical depiction.
