This is our true art piece. Based on what is considered the world’s first novel, The Tale of Genji, by Shikibu Murasaki (her surname means “purple” in English), Aoi no Ue is a Noh drama where one of the main characters, a noblewoman is possessed by a jealous spirit, symbolized by the hannya mask. A line from the Tale of Genji appears on the back of the rash guard, “暗闇での現実は、夢よりも儚い” means in the darkness, real things are more fleeting than dreams. 紫帯on the right sleeve means purple belt. 大侍, Ozamurai, means great warrior.
