Yi Cheng School and the west Storehouse of Books and Records
In the beginning, a strict screening system was in place for the selection of students for the institute as only those who had passed the state examination for public servants would be eligible for admission. Students in the institute must conduct constant practice so they could be selected as servants and musicians in the ceremonial rituals. In the year 8 of Showa of the Japanese calendar (1933), when the Ceremonial rituals for the Confucius Temple were being prepared, ancient music scripts and notes were collected, a practice that made ancient music survive. At this time, a niche is made available in the open space in the middle for Confucius and 5 Wenchang Emperor. The tablet above the niche reads Elegant Tune in Secluded Palace.
