Various Local Kintaro Legends
A new book was published
on various Kintaro legends collected all over the country!!!
"Kintaro" is very popular here in Japan. Therefore, many people
insist "My town or my village is the native place of Kintaro, and
they show histrical evidences of Kintaro, true or false.
Now, volunteers here in Minami-ashigara collected all those different
stories scattered all over Japan (21 places), and published a (288
pages) book with plenty of photographs.
Price of the book is only 1000yen ($10).
Unfortunately, it is written in Japanese. Sorry, no plan to be
translated into English.
Those who are interested in the book, please contact Education
Program Office of Minami-ashigara city.
