The tale of Genji is one of the most famous books in Japan kinda like our Shakespeare (i think ) it tells the tale (do you like that tale of Genji tells the tale 😉 ) of court life in medieval Japan Genji is the prince and has a very passionate nature and loving . Mainly it tells you of the types of clothes wore in Japan in that era which is why Liza Dalby refers
to it so much in her books such as Kimono fashioning culture.
