We have selected for you 9 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 Star-Lovers; 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.
