Have you ever wondered what it means to read Japanese Fairy Tales are like?

If you are like me, and used to European Fairy Tales, then these will seem a little different, namely, when the hero comes in and does his heroly deed, he doesn't simply marry the princess and live happily ever after, or ride off with his sidekick into the sunset. Apparently, the Japanese need a little more closure about the remaining life of the hero, so there are about 5-10 obligatory pages chronicling the fame and fortune of the hero before the actual ending of the book. This makes the stories seem a bit long winded and fluffy at first, but you get used to it after a while. Its true that the kindle freebie version is a bit lacking in format and spell checking, but this didn't bother me because I paid 99 cents for it.

Thirty-eight wonderful, imaginative tales some of my favorites including "The Peony Lantern" for it's sad story of the master's hunt for his lost love, "The Robe of Feathers" for it's description of the fairies and the lightness of their tread upon the sand and "The Jelly-Fish Takes a Journey" for the humorous exchange between jelly-fish and monkey. Kindle version has an active table of content so you can read any of the tales in any order you choose. I only wish that the book had been illustrated as this one seems to be made for it. Really enjoyable!

I'm a fan of Japanese "things" and thought i could tell my grandkids some of these at bedtime. Some are certainly not for bedtime and i think two are Chinese, not Japanese. No matter, they are great stories just the same. I read the whole thing at one shot (over 3 days) and still remember some of them. Definitely older fairy tales, unless you have a decent understanding of their history and thought processes, might be a bit confusing as to why this guy did these things or why a dragon laying across the road is commonplace.

Will be reading these to the young'uns and have already told the older kids some of the better ones. Will read again

Well-translated and written book. The stories were very interesting, but I gave this book 5 stars because it was formatted well. There's many books for Kindle that show poor formatting and amateurish writing skills. Not this book. I'm very glad to have bought it and will keep it permanently in my virtual bookshelf for friends and family.

I have a Kindle on my Samsung Galaxy S, and on my Google Nexus 7, and on my PC. All three versions of this book look great and are well formatted. Perhaps there were issues with previous releases or with earlier versions of Kindle. I know a LOT of Shakespeare was really messed up in Kindle formats (due to the style of the theatrical text formatting).

This is a collection of Japanese folk tales more than anything. The stories collected here are among the most popular. They are varied and quite enjoyable. I actually started reading this due to my interest in Ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world - basically Japanese wood block prints). Many of the Ukiyo-e artists had themes centered on characters and events from these tales. I was surprised that even the very first story was spot on with the summary under one of Yoshitsune's prints. Even the second story was one that was familiar to me.

The tales all seem to have a lesson or moral to learn. They are quick reads and quite enjoyable. Most are what I would consider appropriate for all ages, though in the manner of many international tales, there is a bit of violence here and there. But what child doesn't remember the famous tale of humpty dumpty and the violent crash.

Best of all it's free to download!

Thanks to a Good reads challenge, I was encouraged to find and read fairy tales from a different culture. These Japanese tales fit the bill. I had never heard of fairy tales from Japan, so was pleased to find these. The tales were entertaining, though not always satisfying. The endings of some left the reader hanging.
I was able to purchase audible for the book, which made the reading even more enjoyable.
Open your horizons and experience Japanese Fairy Tales.

We downloaded this book for our weekend getaway trip, and it was the best decision. There are 22 stories, between 9 and 30 minutes long. The stories are great, with lots of details and no sugar coating. They reminded me of old Russian fairy tales. My 9 year old kept asking to turn it back on whenever I needed to pause for one reason or the other.
An entertaining little compendium of fantastic tales that usually revolve around animals.
Mean and petty women also abound, as well as moral stories about filial piety.
Not surprisingly, there are some similarities with Western fairy tales.
These stories, however, will not really give you any insight into Japanese culture. Rather, you should approach this book with at least some basic knowledge about Japanese way of life.
