William  Elliot  Griffis  born  in  Philadelphia  in  1843,  was  an  educator,  author  and 
Congregational  minister.  In  1870  he  was  invited  to  go  to  Japan  in  order  to 
modernize  the  school  system  and  became  the  Superintendent  of  Education  in  the 
Province  of  Echizen.  Whilst  there  he  became  interested  in  the  folk  lore,  legends 
and  stories  of  the  East  and  began  to  collect  tales  from  the  story  tellers  that  he  met 
with  and  the  literature  that  he  found  there.  The  thirty  four  wonderful  stories  in  this 
collection  are  some  of  the  ones  that  he  found  and  fortunately  decided  to  share 
with  us.  Note:  The  "Contents"  only  lists  34  stories  but  there  is  an  extra  one 
between  No.  25  and  No.  26,  giving  35  stories  in  all.
