This week we narrated and discussed folktales from Japan! We
don't have much as far as sources go, as we read directly from the
book "Japanese Fairy Tales" (also known as
"The Japanese Fairy Book"
), which was compiled by Yei Theodora
Ozaki and published in 1908 (or 1903 for the Google books version).
The book is freely available on Project Gutenburg: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/4018/4018-h/4018-h.htm
We read 2 stories from this book, "The Farmer and the Badger",
and "The Story of the Man Who Did Not Wish to Die"
If you have any personal stories about creatures, monsters, or
cryptids (even if you don't know what it was), please email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org so we can eventually do a listener
episode! Visit us at folkloreontherocks.com for more in depth
notes, links, and pictures.
Once we hit 100 iTunes reviews, we'll release a bonus episode with
a listener selected creature! Please rate and review us when you
have a moment, as it will help us immensely!
