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


(Ninnaji Temple festival.)

This time inteoduce Ninna-ji Temple.
Ninna-ji was founded in the early Heian period. In 886,
Emperor Kōkō ordered the construction of the Nishiyama Goganji Temple to bless the nation and propagate Buddhist teachings, but he did not live to see its completion.
Emperor Uda saw the construction to its completion in 888 and named it "Ninna" after the regnal year of the late Emperor Kōkō's reign. From 888 to 1869 it was traditional for reigning Emperors to send a son to the temple to take over as head priest when a vacancy arose.
Ninna-ji Temple became the first of Kyoto's monzeki - temples whose abbots came from the imperial family.

In The Tale of Genji, Retired Emperor Suzaku's temple in the Western Hills is traditionally identified with Ninna-ji. In The Confessions of Lady Nijo, Ariake, one of the author's lovers, was abbot of Ninna-ji and a brother of Emperor Go-Fukakusa.
