Edition read: "Japanese Folk Tales: a Revised Edition" translated by Fanny Hagin Mayer.
The Japanese folk tales emerged during the Edo period, featuring animal spirits and the yokai (supernatural being), yamauba; an old crone with long hair and tattered kimono. Some of the folk tales read like a moral story.
