Do you know "Momotaro" ?
He is the one of the most famous hero of the old Japanese Famous Stories, "Nihon mukashi banashi".
Unbelievably, he is born from a peach, "Momo". "Taro" means boy. So he is called " Momotaro "
He lives with grandparents (of course, they aren't his real grandparents).
After he is grown he decides to fight and exterminate "Oni", famous demons in Japan !!!
Animals, a dog, a pheasant and a monkey accompany with him and fight !!!
In Japan, there are many regend of "Onigashima" , the island living Oni.
"Megijima" in Kagawa prefecture is one of the island which is called "Onigashima"
It takes about twenty minutes for Onigashima by the ferry from Takamatsu port.
After we land at the island we departure to the caves which many onis live....
We become very serious and nervous........
Ahhhhhhhh!!!! Onis look at us from the bush !!!
Gatekeeper looks at us !!!!
But we can enter caves.
" Onigawara" we use them with roofs of our house to avoid evils.
But these are art works of residents of this island and airtists who help them.
Dead oni, It was crushed by another demon.(art works of art group in Japan,CHAOS*LOUNGE)
Maybe, the boss oni!!!! Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!
He or she will attack and eat us......
But they are looking at us but he doesn't catch us.
Why? They are full, aren't they ? They don't notice us ?
Oh, Momotaro appears to help us, but onis look stronger than him !!!!!
We leave the cave during Momotaro is fighting onis.
They aren't accompanied animals....
I wish he got the victory like the story....
Inspire of It is very dangerous and terrible place, we can come back.....
Fortunately, we manage to run away from terrible caves without injury....
If you want to this Onigashima, don't forget to be very very careful.....
