・The 9th story - Aoi
Although Rokujo-no-Miyasudokoro had been in distress over Genji's recent coldhearted behaviour, she went out by carriage to have just one look at Genji who would accompany Aoi Matsuri (Hollyhock Festival) procession of Kamo Shrine. However, her followers quarrelled with the ones of Genji's wedded wife Aoi-no-Ue about the position where Genji could be easily seen. Aoi-no-Ue's followers damaged and backed the carriage which Rokujo-no-Miyasudokoro was in, and Rokujo-no-Miyasudokoro was hurt more deeply. After that, Aoi-no-Ue suffered from an evil spirit and died after childbirth.
