26-Japanese Fairy Tales: Wisdom

Myths and Legends

This week: two folktales from Japan. One is about a humble, happy stone cutter who becomes a power-mad, bitter stone cutter. The other is about, surprise surprise, supernatural occurrences at a Buddhist temple in a remote mountain region.

The creature of the week is...or are...the blue men of the Minch. They are blue, men, and very, very good at writing poetry.
