When I was walking along Horikawa-dori Avenue in northern part of the city of Kyoto, a big sign hit my eyes; it said “Lady Murasaki’s Grave.” Yes, I am talking about the author of “The Tale of Genji,” (probably completed in the early 11th century) one of the oldest novels ever written in the world. It is a very small grave site in a small place amongst some modern buildings. It came with a large stone plaque that explained Lady Murasai in Japanese and in English. Interestingly, Lady Murasaki’s grave is side by side with the grave of Ono no Takamura (Takamura of the Ono Family). He was not only well known as a literary giant of the time, but also a go-between between the human world and the hell. Is it an indication that Lady Murasaki, by authoring a scandalous novel with so many adulteries in it, had to have a guidance by Ono no Takamura to get out from the hell??
