JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY

The Shinto and Buddhist Gods of Japan...

MOMOTARO

Japanese Hero God

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.
