Momotaro Story

Momotaro Story

Momotaro is quite possibly the most famous folk hero in Japan. Born from a peach (yes, a peach!), he went on to save his village from a band of marauding monsters. Read this shortened version of the Momotaro story, then think about what makes a true hero, both in a fairytale and in real life.
