The mystery and magic of Japanese fairy tales have captivated generations of listeners. In this anthology 20th century scholar Yei Theodora Ozaki collects an array of stories from her native nation and arranges them into liberal, endlessly entertaining English translations. Her work with these stories are among the most popular translations of Japanese tales and were reprinted several times after her death in 1932.

Ozaki’s success in translating tales could be linked to her own unconventional life; the daughter of a Japanese man who studied— and eventually became a Baron— and the European daughter of a teacher, Ozaki’s life was spent traveling between Japan and Europe world. Her balance between the Western and Eastern worlds is evident in her writing.
