Shirai Tetsuzou, with the support of the Japanese National Commission for UNESCO, created a beautiful picture scroll of the author of "Genji Monogatari," who was recently ranked as one of the world's greatest figures.
One day, a letter was delivered to Murasaki Shikibu. It was a love letter from Yoshitaka, who had feelings for her. However, since Yoshitaka was a person with many rumors swirling about him, she thought that he was simply playing with her and treated him coldly.
Eventually, she moved to her father's new home in the state of Echizen, where she began to spend her time in a monotonous life deep in the snow. At that time, Murasaki Shikibu became fascinated by Yoshitaka's love for her, which he was still sending to her in letters claiming unchanging feelings.
Two years after marrying Yoshitaka, he died of a sudden illness. From this time on, Murasaki Shikibu began writing "The Tale of Genji" to heal her sadness of losing her husband.
Eventually, Murasaki Shikibu, whose name had become exhaulted, was called by Fujiwara no Michinaga (an advisor to the emperor) to serve Emperor Ichijo's Empress Shoushi. The empress commanded that she finish "The Tale of Genji", which spanned 54 books.
