4-0 out of 5 stars Omoshiroi
The stories in this book were very interesting and I enjoyed them. However, I do think it would be nice if the free Kindle edition contained the original illustrations. The same is true for most, if not all of the free classics for Kindle. But of course it is free.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This is a graet book on this set of Japanese Fairy Tales.When I first gt the book I was impressed with the cover it made me want toread it.The stories were great and the illustrations were good to.Its nice to see a book with illustrations.After being in contact the publisher I found out that there will be more books in this series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kakoi!
Since it was free I didn't really know what to expect but the stories are quite nice. Not all of them are light-hearted though and even with the ones with "happy endings" you still might not want to read them to kids.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not well formatted for the Kindle
the stories are wonderful. a few of them match some of the stoies we heard while living in Okinawa with the military.

HOWEVER, I cannot give the Kindle version a 5 star like I would like to, because the formatting is absolutely horrendous.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Child's Treasury of Japanese Fairy Tales
Originally published in 1903,Yei Theodora Ozaki's translation of Sadanami Sanjin's collection of Japanese fairy tales has been the introduction of many a young child into the legends and fables of old Japan across the years.Definitely not a scholarly reference or valuable research tool for folktale researchers, Ozaki unabashedly re-crafted some of the stories, translating loosely and adding in elements of unrelated tales, in order to make them more enjoyable and understandable for Western children.She even gave Urashimataro a happy ending!

There is something delightfully romantic about translations from this era, due to the unfamiliarity with Japanese culture at the time.Terms that would not be translated today, like "oni" and "samurai", are rendered as "ogre" and "knight" and other English equivalents.While unauthentic, this makes the stories more approachable by young children who have a mind for fantasy but haven't yet graduated to Japanese Studies.

While far from a picture book, artist Kakuzo Fujiyama contributed 66 beautiful drawings to illustrate the 22 tales. Unfortunately, all the illustrations are reproduced in black-and-white, instead of the original color plates included in the original pressings.

Many of the stories here are familiar with anyone even slightly interested in Japanese folklore."Momotaro, or the Story of the Son of a Peach, "The Story of Urashima Taro, the Fisher Lad", "Kintaro the Golden Boy" and "The Ogre of Rashomon".Along with these, there are rarer tales that I haven't seen in any other Japanese fairy tale collection."The Stones of Five Colors and the Empress Jokwa", "The Sagacious Monkey and the Boar" and "How and Old Man Lost his Wren" were all new to me. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars really fun
I got this book to assist me in teaching my elementary school students about the cultural differences of fairy tales from around the world.These tales are kid-friendly but also make a nice read for a grown up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
The Japanese short-stories in this book were absolutely brilliant.

Each story has a moral to be learned. In each story, the decieving are punished in different ways. It also gives a magical perspective of everyday morals to the reader.

5-0 out of 5 stars A charming collection of stories
A wonderful collection of short stories, easy to read. They have been translated with Westerners in mind, but still remain uniquely Japanese. There are beautiful black and white illustrations with each story. ... Read more

Product Description
Long, long ago in Kyoto, the people of the city were terrified by accounts of a dreadful ogre, who, it was said, haunted the Gate of Rashomon at twilight and seized whoever passed by. The missing victims were never seen again, so it was whispered that the ogre was a horrible cannibal, who not only killed the unhappy victims but ate them also. Now everybody in the town and neighborhood was in great fear, and no one durst venture out after sunset near the Gate of Rashomon. ... Read more
