We have selected for you nine of the best Japanese myths and fairy tales. Not unlike the western folk tales compiled by the Brothers Grimm, these stories faithfully preserve the spirit of medieval Japan, while rendered in a translation accessible to all ages. Here is a wonderful collection of short stories:
The Battle of the Monkey and the Crab;
Momotaro, or Little Peachling;
Urashimataro and the Turtle;
The Tongue-cut Sparrow;
The Vision of Tsunu;
The Old man and the Devils;
The Jellyfish and the Monkey;
Autumn and Spring.
These fairy tales and legends of old are a window into the Japanese imagination; it is a peculiar travel through space and time, which will delight children and adults alike.
