Genji's love letter "Yugao no Hana"



I am sending you a letter out of the blue.Please forgive my rudeness.

you don't know me

but i know you

It's just a pointless rumor.

“The white dew that peeks out towards the heart, the evening glory flower that goes to the light.”

I look forward to your good reply.
