Book Description
The rich world of Japanese fantasy is very apparent in Japanese Fairy Tales, a compilation of twenty-two favorite stories from the land of the rising sun. A fantastic selection of ghouls, goblins and ogres; sea serpents and sea kings; kindly animals and magic birds; demons and dragons; princes and princesses hide within these pages.
Included are such favorites as "Momotaro, or the Story of the Son of a Peach", "The Jellyfish and the Monkey", "The Mirror of Matsuyama" and "The Bamboo Cutter and the Moon Child", along with several lesser-known stories like "The Stones of Five Colors and the Empress Jokwa."
