MURASAKI – purple flower
A girl’s pure heart dedicated to Genji is expressed in flower petals spread in a yard, which gives peace and steadiness in design.
Genji went to practice incantations and perform prayers in northern mountain in spring and fell in love with a girl, MurasakinoUe, who recalled the image of his stepmother whom he loves. She also felt his gorgeous and elegant way of life, viewing flowers over sake as a beauty, dedicating her life to him with her pure soul that gave a restful feeling to him.
