Tsuki's very special treasure!


Full name: Tsukimi

Every night the Old Man in the Moon looks down on Earth to see how his animals are doing. He smiles to see them resting after a hard day's work. He winks at sleeping children. He hovers over rivers and lakes, lighting the waves and the shore. One night long ago, the Old Man lingered in the sky over a forest in Japan. The animals below - Fox (Kitsune), Monkey (Saru), and Rabbit (Usagi) - seemed to live in peace and harmony, and after a while he began to wonder about these animals that he knew only by sight. "Which of these friends is the kindest creature?" he asked himself as he watched Rabbit dash across the fields. "I wonder which is most generous?" he said softly as he watched Monkey swing from a tree. "I wonder what they are truly like," he said as he watched Fox paw at the forest floor to make his bed. "I need to know more about my creatures."


Thus, he disguised himself as an old beggar and pleaded with Fox, Monkey and Rabbit for some food. The three friends felt pity for the beggar and agreed to carry out his task. Monkey brought the beggar a great variety of fruit from the trees. Fox caught a fresh fish from the stream and brought it back to him. But Rabbit had nothing to offer him but the grasses, so he asked his friends to build a fire. When the fire was blazing brightly, Rabbit said to the old beggar, "I have nothing to offer you but myself. I am going to jump into the fire, and when I am roasted, please feast upon me for I cannot bear to see you go hungry." and leapt into the fire. The beggar transformed back into the Old Man of the Moon and pulled Rabbit from the fire, who stared in shock. "Don’t be afraid," the Old Man said. "You see, dear Rabbit, I am more than a beggar, and I have seen that you are more than generous. Your kindness is beyond price, but you must understand, I wish you no harm. I do not want you to sacrifice yourself for my comfort. I will take you home with me, where I can watch over you and make sure you are never harmed."


The Old Man in the Moon lifted the rabbit into his arms and carried him up to the moon. The monkey and the fox watched in amazement, but they were grateful, for they wished their friend no harm.
If you look carefully at the moon when it is full and bright, you will see the rabbit living there in peace, resting in the Old Man's arms and helping him to watch over us all.

Story is an old Japanese folktale,
which is Tsukimi's favourite fable!
