History of Jhokyo-den

‘The Tale of Genji’ begins with the line ‘In a certain reign there was a lady not of the first rank whom the emperor loved more than any of the others’.
High-ranking consorts resided in the Jhokyo-den Hall (inner palace), near the state chambers of the Imperial Palace, Shishinden Hall and Jijuden Hall, where official ceremonies were held. Jhokyo-den and Jijuden Hall used to be connected by a corridor.
On the Eastern veranda, there is a place where the Emperor’s books were kept and it is here that the Kokin Wakushu (Collection of Japanese Poems of Ancient and Modern Times) was compiled.
The court lady who became Empress to the Emperor Daigo and Inchijo who lived here was called “the Lady of Jhokyoden.”
