This paper examines how father-daughter relationships drive the story of Tamakazura. Previous studies about Tamakazura commonly focused on the ten chapters about the protagonist, Tamakazura (Tamakazura JuJo). However, examining the relationships between the protagonist and her two fathers can reveal an even more complex story about a daughter who is belonged to two families. Tamakazura`s story takes an unconventional route, because Tamakazura establishes and maintains good relationships with the members of Genji`s household, whereas most stories about adoptees describe a cruel stepfamily. This accordance might stem from Genji`s support for her. In particular, under his tutelage, Tamakazura begins to work in the court. Interestingly, through the occasion of a coming-of-age ceremony that Genji orchestrates, she has the opportunity to meet her natural father. Especially in the chapter titled “Spring Shoot I” (Wakana jo) chapter, Tamakazura carries on the role of daughter to Genji. For example, she prepares a fortieth birthday for her stepfather. Her natural family also takes part in the party and performs aristocratic musical instrument. Tamakazura seems to have an ambassadorial quality, because she connects Genji`s family with the Left Minister`s. Her role as Genji`s daughter can be confirmed by examining the “Bamboo Tree” (Takekawa) chapter. The chapter alludes to Genji`s decision to succeed a part of his property to Tamakazura. Futhermore, the close relationship with Yugiri and Kaoru shows that she acted appropriately as the stepdaughter of Genji`s family. To understand Tamakazura contextually, one should compare it to a similar story in the folk literature genre. This folk story tells of a daughter who was torn away from her father by an eagle. Eventually, she rejoins her natural father, but she keeps the relationship with the nursing father. In those stories, we can refer to the existence of daughter who can build a good relationship between her nursing and natural father. Therefore, it is thought that Tamakazura story sheds light on the issue of daughter of two families.
