Plot Summary: A shining baby boy is born between the emperor and Kiritsubo. The boy loses his mother when he is still very young. But the emperor shows a strong liking for him, and he grows into a strikingly handsome young man. The first part of the story (from volumes 1 to 10) follows the happy but sorrowful tales of the glorious youth Hikaru Genji's love. It is also about the women in his life who strive to make their love towards Genji significantly different from others. The second half of the story called the "Uji Jujo" episodes (from volumes 11 to 13) takes place after Genji's death, focusing on the youth of two imperial princes related to Genji.
