MOMOTARO

Midget Hero God known as 'The Little Peachling' or 'Small Renown Man'.

He was born from a peach found floating down a stream by a childless couple. This tiny foster God grew up to be a real toughie of a Tom Thumb, and got together a gang of a dog, a pheasant and a monkey to rescue maidens from demons.

This included much biffing, blapping and belting and a good time was had by all — except the splatted demons.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Momotaro graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Momotaro movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Momotaro statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Momotaro. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
