・The 14th Story - Miotsukushi
Genji was recalled to Kyoto. After his return, Akashi-no-Kimi gave birth to a girl, but he was so busy in Kyoto that he had no time to visit Akashi. Akashi-no-Kimi met a brilliant party of Genji by chance on her way to attending Sumiyoshi. However, she could not even come close to the party. Genji knew that and sent a letter of a waka poem: "As a token of our devoted love, we met by chance in Naniwa where Miotsukushi* was, so our fate must be very linked each other)".
* "Miotsukushi" means a stake for ships put in shallow coastal waters in the Bay of Naniwa.
