  • Is transmitted from generation to generation from the great-grandfather of Murasaki Shikibu. Is famous for Oni dance, published in terms of the demon. Great location because it was more properly the description on the image point by point without knowing anything. Temple is very old, so even the color of the wood near the pinprick was shining very glossy, are still properly clean. Told tale of yard and garden is spacious and quiet flower seasons but felt the atmosphere enough. It is a garden stone and MOSS is the lead until the trees one by one.

  • Rozanji Temple is closely associoated with an author of Lady Murasaki and The Tale of Genji who served at Imperial Palace and wrote the first poem in the history of Japanese literature. It was her farther Fujiwara Kanesuke who was a court official built his mansion in this place. It is said this is the very place where Murasaki Shikibu wrote her great works as it is depicted on some stone monument standing in this temple. The temple was originally established in 938 on the hill side of Mt. Funaoka in Nishijin area and moved to the current location to escape the destruction by the great warlord Oda Nobunaga in the late 16th century. Rozanji was established by imperial command of Emperor Kokaku to bury the souls of imperial family. ( Trans-wor+ : TGM Kyoto Guide )
