“Toyokage” is a collection of waka poems, which was compiled by Fujiwara-no-Koremasa so as to \make it seem like a story. I think Koremasa’s purpose of making it up is embodied in the waka poems and \the distribution of them in “Toyokage”. In this paper I view the function of the waka poems by reading \the three poems from No. 21 to No. 23 which relate the girl servant Nobe, who served under a Female.\These three poems are written in the ﬁfth story of “Toyokage”. I think this story is intended to show \the diﬀerence of Nobe’s work. On one hand Nobe does not seem to work well because she failed \to intermediate between Toyokage and the Female and also died. On the other hand she seems to \contribute to make Toyokage’s expression in the three waka poems he sent to the Female. In each \poem the word ‘nobe’ is included and means not only the servant’s name but also a ﬁeld. The context \made by the meaning of a ﬁeld gives expression to Toyokage’s heart for the Female.\In conclusion I think the function of these waka poems is to construct a world which diﬀers from \the real one.
