Although haiku is the Japanese form of waka that is most familiar to Western readers, waka has many different variations.

Waka is the general term for Japanese poetry.

Onji literally means 'sound part'. Haiku is comprised of three lines of text with onji of 5-7-5. In English, 'onji' translates to 'syllables', though it isn't a precise translation.
