Welcome my folk story lovers!

I have you an old 1908 Japanese Folk Story episode – letters compiled by one friend of author Yei Theodora Ozaki into a compilation of traditional Japanese folk tales.
And this time I have for you The Story of Urashima The Fisherman Lad. His kind heart leads him on a journey to another realm. A realm of #japanese #myth and #legend. Being kind opens up doors for Urashima, doors that can never be closed, and once he realises the cost of entering such a realm, there’s no going back, or so it seems. Join me on today’s episode of the strange and out of this world with an old #Japan #folkstory.
Thank you so much for listening the #podcast mates! And a big thank you to all of you lovely contributors.
