Do traditional Japanese haikus always describe a moment?

I am currently reading *The Heart of Haiku* by Jane Hirshfield. In it, there are many examples of haikus by Bashō. In them, they always appear to give reference to a time, either explicitly or through description of the moment. Are there any examples of early Japanese haiku that attempt to describe a place rather than a moment?
