Heian

    Keywords: Culture & History

The Heian period in Japan ran 794-1192, and was a high point in the courtly culture.

Japanese-language literature such as Genji Monogatari flourished (alongside Chinese-language literature); and we know from it that go was part of the court life.

In Hikaru no Go, an anime and manga series, a character named Fujiwara-no-Sai is from the Heian era.
