Project Idea: Japanese Fairy Tales

The Japanese fairy tale tradition is amazing, and you can find there all kinds of stories: princesses and princes, heroes and heroines, along with magical tricksters like the famous tanuki.

Research Tip: You can take a look at the two Japanese fairy tale units in the UnTextbook, one by Theodora Ozaki and one by Andrew Lang. There are also many wonderful books online you can look through: Fairy Tales from Far Japan by Susan Ballard, Japanese Folk Stories and Fairy Tales by Mary F. Nixon-Roulet, Wonder Tales of Old Japan by Alan Leslie Whitehorn, Green Willow and Other Japanese Fairy Tales by Grace James, Japanese Fairy World by William Elliot Griffis, and the beautiful Japanese Fairy Tale series by Hasegawa Takejiro.
