I took this photo somewhere in Kyoto City, and like a fool, do not remember where, nor more precisely what it said.

Since the photo came out really fuzzy, I'm having trouble reading it.

It's the sign at an imperial gravesite - for a princess I would assume (~子内親王), though since I can't make out the first character, I can't figure out which princess.

I don't suppose someone with keener eyes or magical incredible insights could help solve this mystery?

(I've never quite managed to properly resize images on here, so just a link, not the image itself.)

Yoroshiku!!

The only thing I can see there is a list of things not to do, signed by the Kunaicho. Is that the correct photo? Confused

The first line on the right is the grave's designation.

Unfortunately, it is too blurry to make out the first character Sad

It is indeed too blurry Sad I took this at night, and it came out nearly black. I had to raise the contrast in post, as it were, to get anything at all out of it. which is why it looks so grainy.

Oh well. しょうがない。
