Long long ago, an old man and old woman lived. An old man went to the mountain to cut grass and an old woman went to the liver to washing. When an old woman was washing, a big peach was flowing so she took and cut it. Then, a boy baby appeared inside the peach, so an old man and an old woman named him Momo(peach)tarou. The boy, Momotarou, has grown into a strong boy. One day, Momotarou said, “I will go demon’s island and get rid of bad demons.” An old woman gave him kibidango (Japanese cake) and he left his home. On his way, he met a dog, a monkey and pheasant. He gave them his kibidango and they joined with Momotarou. They reached demon’s island and knocked damons down. They took away demon’s treasure. An old man and on old woman were glad that Momotarou came back safely. Finally, Momotarou, an old man and on old woman lived happily.
