The Adventures of Momotaro



This is a 50 page photo book of Momotaro, one of the old tales in Japan. Momotaro came to Earth inside a giant peach, which was found floating down a river by an old woman who was washing clothes there. She discovered the child when she tried to open the peach and named him Momotaro. Years later, Momotaro left her to fight a band of marauding oni (demons or ogres) on a distant island called Onigashima. En route, Momotaro met and befriended a talking dog, monkey, and pheasant, who agreed to help him in his quest. At the island, Momotaro and his animal friends beat the band of demons into surrendering. This photo book includes the pictures of Kibizu Shrine in Okayama and Ki castle, which are the places in the story, and other places which remind us of Momotaro's birthplace.
