Publisher Comments:

The rich world of Japanese fantasy is very apparent in andlt;iandgt;Japanese Fairy Talesandlt;/iandgt;, 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.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;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."

Synopsis:

This collection of Japanese fairy tales is the outcome of a suggestion made to me indirectly through a friend by Mr. Andrew Lang. They have been translated from the modern version written by Sadanami Sanjin. These stories are not literal translations, and though the Japanese story and all quaint Japanese expressions have been faithfully preserved, they have been told more with the view to interest young readers of the West than the technical student of folk - lore. Grateful acknowledgment is due to Mr. Y. Yasuoka, Miss Fusa Okamoto, my brother Nobumori Ozaki, Dr. Yoshihiro Takaki, and Miss Kameko Yamao, who have helped me with translations.
