Japanese Fairy Talesby Yei Theodora Ozaki
JAPANESE FAIRY TALESCOMPILED BYYEI THEODORA OZAKIProfusely Illustrated by Japanese ArtistsTOELEANOR MARION-CRAWFORD.I DEDICATE THIS BOOK TO YOU AND TO THE SWEET CHILD-FRIENDSHIPTHATYOU GAVE ME IN THE DAYS SPENT WITH YOU BY THE SOUTHERN SEA,WHEN YOUUSED TO LISTEN WITH UNFEIGNED PLEASURE TO THESE FAIRYSTORIES FROMFAR JAPAN. MAY THEY NOW REMIND YOU OF MY CHANGELESS LOVEANDREMEMBRANCE.Y. T. O.Tokio, 1908.
 
PREFACE.This collection of Japanese fairy tales is the outcome of asuggestion made to me indirectly through a friend by Mr. AndrewLang. They have been translated from the modern version written bySadanami Sanjin. These stories are not literal translations, andthough the Japanese story and all quaint Japanese expressions havebeen faithfully preserved, they have been told more with the view tointerest young readers of the West than the technical student of folk-lore.Grateful acknowledgment is due to Mr. Y. Yasuoka, Miss Fusa Okamoto,my brother Nobumori Ozaki, Dr. Yoshihiro Takaki, and Miss KamekoYamao, who have helped me with translations.The story which I have named "The Story of the Man who did not Wishto Die" is taken from a little book written a hundred years ago byone Shinsui Tamenaga. It is named Chosei Furo, or "Longevity." "TheBamboo-cutter and the Moon-child" is taken from the classic"Taketari Monogatari," and is NOT classed by the Japanese amongtheir fairy tales, though it really belongs to this class of literature.The pictures were drawn by Mr. Kakuzo Fujiyama, a Tokio artist.In telling these stories in English I have followed my fancy inadding such touches of local color or description as they seemed toneed or as pleased me, and in one or two instances I have gatheredin an incident from another version. At all times, among my friends,both young and old, English or American, I have always found eager listeners to the beautiful legends and fairy tales of Japan, and intelling them I have also found that they were still unknown to thevast majority, and this has encouraged me to write them for thechildren of the West.Y. T. O.Tokio, 1908.
