  • Japanese: 耳底記 (jiteiki)

Jiteiki (lit. "Record of the Depths of my Ears") is a collection of Hosokawa Yûsai Fujitaka's thoughts on poetry, recorded by Karasumaru Mitsuhiro over the course of 73 meetings with Yûsai between 1598 and 1602.

The work was first published in 1661, being reissued in 1669 and 1702, as well as in later years. The volume includes comments on earlier poetry treatises presented in the form of a Q&A, evaluations of Yûsai's contemporaries, assessments of their poems, and a condensed version of Yûsai's thoughts on poetry as an official member of the Nijô school of poetry.
