[What's Genb?]

  Genb is the Japanese name for an ancient Chinese mystical animal, the Black Turtle entwined together with a snake.
  It is one of the four symbols of Chinese constellation that guards each direction. The four mystical guardians are the Azure Dragon of the East, the Vermilion Bird of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Turtle of the North. Genb is also known as a deity of water.
  There are many historical views of how and what Genb symbolizes in the city of Kyoto (if it is a place, a deity, or a direction, etc.), yet the precise meaning of the icon is unknown.
  At Abekita Editorial Department, we use the name “Genb” to describe the Rakuhoku Area of northern Kyoto City, as we continue to publish information magazines of the Rakuhoku area over the past 18 years.
  It is our hope that we can convey the attraction of Rakuhoku to many people, including visitors and the locals.
  We sincerely wish that Genb magazine will spread many attractions of the area to all the readers.
