57-Japanese Fairy Tales: Faithful

Myths and Legends

This week, there are two stories from Japanese folklore.  The first has to do with  a butterfly that just won't give up trying to land on the face of a dying man. The second is of a monk-in-training who just doesn't want to stop partying.

The creature is Hedley Cow, and she will give you hope that that the relationship with your crush might work out...but will leave you standing alone in the swamp.


Check out for some excellent audiobooks. The one I recommended on today's show was "Mythology" by Edith Hamilton.
