The Native Place Tour of The Tale of Genji / Vol. 41

Introduce "Oharano".
Lying south-west of the old city of Kyoto and on the slopes of Mount Oshio, Oharano is the scene of an imperial procession and a hunt in the Royal Outing chapter of The Tale of Genji.
The Oharano area is named after Oharano Shrine, one of the most famous sites in the area. While it is not really so far from the inner city, it does not reflect any of the stereotypical images one has when they think of Kyoto.
The area is so rural, it feels as though the nearest city is hundreds of miles away. Most tourists are not even aware this area exists, so it can be a nice change of pace for those who have the time to explore the outer regions.

When the capital was moved from Nara to Nagaoka in 784, the Fujiwara clan invited their tutelary god to move to a new shrine at Oharano. The god accepted and entered the capital riding on the back of a deer.

Yoshimine-dera temple and Jurin-ji temple are also in the Oharano area, southwest of Kyoto.
