In the title, Genji Monogatari Emaki the word emaki came from the word emakimono meaning picture scrolls.

The emakimono picture scrolls consisted of two designs. These two designs were either pictures that were painted on a scroll with text added to the same scroll or a number of paintings that accompanied passages of text and were joined together in a scroll. 
The first known picture scroll was produced in Japan during either the late ninth or tenth century. The Genji Monogatari picture scroll, however, was constructed at the beginning of the twelfth century.

It is said to be the oldest surviving picture scroll depicting the novel The Tale of Genji. Not only is the Genji Monogatari Emaki the oldest surviving monogatari scroll but it is also the oldest surviving non-Buddhist scroll in Japan.

There is no exact date to when the scroll was constructed but it is estimated to being sometime between 1120 and 1130. It was constructed just a little over one hundred years after Lady Murasaki Shikibu wrote The Tale of Genji.

Some believe that the Genji Monogatari Emaki is an example of narrative art from the Heian period and came directly from a Chinese source, despite the fact that the scroll uses strictly Japanese techniques.

Those who believe this say that it came from T'ang figure and landscape painting which was imported into Japan during the early Heian period. But, in the history of Chinese art there has never been a set of paintings and calligraphy in the form of a scroll found. 

Also, in almost all ways The Genji Monogatari Emaki scroll differs from the values and art styles of the Chinese. Therefore, it is true that the Genji Monogatari Emaki comes strictly from Japanese art forms. The purpose for the construction of the scroll was to provide a visual depiction and further explanation of the novel The Tale of Genji.
For your information, the location of "The Tokugawa Art Museum" is as  follows according to Giigle Maps.
