Urashimataro−14
 "Yes, something like that. They say he married the Dragon King's daughter and is living happily under the sea, lucky devil," the man said, and then lowering his voice, he added,
"but some say he ran off with a married woman from a nearby village and that his relatives made up the turtle story."

 Urashimataro left the man and went to sit down on the beach.
"It was only eight days, it couldn't have been 100 years," he thought.

 He picked up the box given to him by the Dragon King's daughter and looked at it now, as though its contents would explain everything.

 "Just a little look inside," he thought to himself.
"What could be wrong with that?"

The end.

Urashimataro−13
 When Urashimatato arrived back at the bay where he had lived, he was surprised to find his house had disappeared, and he hurried to the nearby village to ask what had happened to it.

 But walking through the village, he was even more surprised to find no one he recognized.
He stopped one passer-by:"Do you know what happened to Urashimataro's house?"

 "Urashimataro?" said the man. "Wait, I've heard that name before. Ah, yes, he's that man who disappeared into the sea on the back of a turtle, right?"

 "Yes, yes, that's him," he said eagerly.

 "That was 100 years ago. You won't find his house now."
 Urashimataro choked, "One hundred years ago?"

Urashimataro−12
 So on the eighth day, as he stared out of his window onto the palace gardens, where the Dragon King was training his dolphins and his daugher was picking anemone, he decided to go home.
The Dragon King was disappointed to hear this and tried to persuade him to stay, but Urashimataro had made up his mind.
 
 So he said farewell to the king and his daughter, and as he left she gave him a beautiful little box as a remembrance of their friendship.
"But you must never open it ------ not for any reason,"  she warned him, and he promised her that he never would.

Urashimataro−11
 Over the next errk, Urashimataro had the best time of his life.
During the day, he went on long drives through the reefs with the Dragon King's daughter, riding large seashell carrighes drawn by seahorses.
And at night there would be a great banquet,with much singing and dancing, eating, and drinking.

 But Urashimataro was a simple man and he began to wish for the simple pleasures of his old life ------ going out every morning on his little fishing boat to catch fish and relaxing on the beach in the afternoon.

 Immediately, all the doors to the hall opened, and a number of octopi entered, carrying tables and plates and cups.
They served them kelp wine, while flatfish brought delicious seaweed and anemone cakes to the tables on their backs.
A school of sea bream and mackerel began to sing and dance to music played by crabs and lobsters on seashell drums and coral flutes.

 It was already dark when, very drunk and very happy, Urashimataro made his way to bed, lit by the light of floating jellyfish.

Special's day
 To day is Children's Day

May 5 is Kodomo-no-hi.
Originally it was called Boy's Festivival and was for celebrating boys' growing up, but now it has become a day to celebrate children in general.
On this day, families with boys set out dolls for the Boy's Festival, ptterned after warriors and heroes, and fly carp streamers.
Carp have the strenghth to swim even up waterfalls and have long been taken as symbols of success in life.
The day also features the practice from long ago of taking a bath with sweet flags, plants reputed to have medicinal effect, and it is also essential to make an offering of the trafitional Japanese confections of rice dumplings weapped in bamboo leves and rice cakes wrapped in oak leaves.

Urashimataro−9
 Urashimataro turned to find the most Beautiful woman he had ever seen in his life.
Her skin was the color of pearl, her eyes  were like rock pools, her long hair was lustrous and black.

 "So, you are the famous hero," she said bowing to him, with a faint smile on her coral-red lips.

 "Hero? Well, sort of, I mean, no, not really, Well, sure, anything you say," mumbled Urashimataro, embarrassed.

 The Dragon King laughed. 
"My daughter, you habe frightened our hero.
We must celebrate his arrival before he runs away."

  "Welcome," said the cod.
"Follow me."
 They followed the cod into a large hall where the Dragon King was waiting,
with his mane of sea-blue hair and his silver scales.
Urashimataro bowed.
 
 "You saved the turtle,"said the Dragon King, his voice like wind on the waves.
"To thank you, I want you to stay with you here in my palace. You will be treated very well, I promise"

 Urashimataro heard a rustle of silk behind him.
 "Ah, my daughter," said the king.
"Let me introduce you  to my daughter."

 "I'm breathing!" he said.
 "And people say I'm slow!" said the turtle simply.
"It is the magic of the Dragon King that lets you breathe."

 They swam through a great coral archway guarded by two giant crabs into a long avenue, lined with seashells.
At the end of the avenue, there stood the beautiful palace of the Dragon King with its magnificent roof, shaped like a great wave.

 As they came closer, the main doors ----- made from oyster shells ----- opened to reveal a cod.

  ”You're going to hurt yourself if you keep on holding your breath,"
said the turtle as they swam along underwater,
"and you don't have to shut your eyes either."

 Urashimataro slowly opened one eye, and what he saw made him gasp.

 The water was clear and blue, and they were swimming among fields of
fantastically colored coral, dark forests of seaweed and mountains of
shell-covered rock.
Fish of all shapes, sizes and coloes swam around them.
It was a world of enchanting, otherworldly, indeed breathtaling beauty.

 Then Urashimataro realized he was breathing.
