Description

Myths & Legends of Japan is a comprehensive anthology of folklore from Japan, ranging from creation myths, to animal stories, to legends of mountains, along with discussions and opinions on them. Some might find the presentation a bit dated, with Davis giving his very 'early twentieth century' take on Japanese culture. Stories include: Heroes And Warriors; The Period Of The Gods; Buddha Legends; Jizō, The God Of Children; Legend In Japanese Art; Legends Of Mount Fuji; Yuki-Onna, The Lady Of The Snow; Animal Legends; Bird And Insect Legends; Legends Of The Sea; Supernatural Beings, and more.

This book has 216 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1912.

Production notes: This edition of Myths & Legends of Japan was published by Global Grey ebooks on the 1st July 2021. The artwork used for the cover is 'Carp Banners in Kyoto' by Louis Dumoulin.
