Urashima Tarō Part 1

  • Day before yesterday, I stayed at a resort hotel called “Hotel Urashima” (ホテル浦島).

    浦島太郎 Part 1

    The name of this hotel comes from the famous Japanese fairy tale, “Urashima Tarō.”

    The outline of “Urashima Tarō” is something like the following.

    A fisherman called Urashima Tarō, found a turtle that is being tormented by children, and rescued it.

    In order to express gratitude, the turtle put Tarō on the back, and invited him to Ryūgū-jō (竜宮城 – Dragon Palace) in the sea.

    In Ryūgū-jō, Tarō was welcomed by the beautiful princess, Otohime (乙姫), and he enjoyed fish dancing and gorgeous food.

    To be continued later.
