The Native Place Tour of The Tale of Genji / Vol. 18

This time introduce "Gio-ji" and "Daikaku-ji Temple".
Have been living in Kyoto arounf 1970, I have visited Daigaku-ji Temple so many times.

Gio-ji

Gio-ji is the retreat originally used by two discarded concubines of Taira Kiyomori in the late Heian period.

The incident was made famous by The Tale of the Heike.

Daikaku-ji Temple

Originally the retirement villa of the 9th century Emperor Saga, Daikaku-ji was later converted into a Shingon Buddhist temple.

Daikaku-ji is famous for its cherry blossom in spring and its three-day Harvest Moon Festival in Autumn.
