Once upon a time, a grandpa and grandma lived somewhere. Grandpa made money by making baskets with cut bamboo. One day, when he went to the forest as usual, he found bamboo which twinkled brightly. He cut this bamboo and looked into the inside of this bamboo. Then, there was a baby girl in this bamboo. As they had no children, they decided to bring up this baby girl. He named the baby girl "Kaguyahime". She grew up very well, and she became very beautiful. She was proposed to a lot of young men many times. She led them to look for treasure as a condition for accepting their proposal, but the treasure never existed, so they couldn't find the treasure. So actually Kaguyahime didn't want to marry. She became sad day be day. One day, grandpa asked her about that. She answered, an ambassador may pick me up from the moon before long. Then, finally the day came. As grandpa didn't want to give her to them, he attacked them. However, it was hopeless to pratect Kaguyahime. Eventually, Kaguyahime returned to the moon with the anbassador. It's a sad story.
