An uta makura: Fukakusa is located in Fushimi Ward of the modern city of Nara. The area became famous after being referred to in KKS VIII: 972 and thus Fukakusa no sato became a favourite phrase to use in allusive variation, although SZS IV: 259 has the honour of being the first example. The area also contains a number of Imperial graves and so is often referred to in Laments.
