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.

Yamato Takero is a prince bestowed with incredible luck, gifted with strength, wisdom, and cunning, the fighter of brigands, a warrior at heart, but not infallibleโ€ฆas we find out. Welcome listeners to your Monday shakeup. Today I have for youโ€™re the Japanese Folk Story โ€“ The Prince of Yamato Takero. This story is less about the morale to learn and more about action and drama. We get to learn about some ancient Japanese laws about manhood, surrounded by similarly ancient Japanese problems โ€“ like brigands and thieves. So turn the lights off, the sound up, and join for a Japanese Folk Story.

Thank you so much for listening the #podcast mates! And a big thank you to all of you lovely contributors.
