"Eagerly Urashima Taro climbed on the turtle’s back. Down, down, down they went into the blue-green water."
Longing for a happiness found only in his dreams, Urashima Taro plunges into the mysteries of the sea in this classic Japanese folktale. The young fisherman soon encounters the Dragon King’s castle, where the mystical Sea Princess promises him an eternity of youthful delight. But Urashima Taro misses his loved ones and sets off to rejoin them, never imaging the changes that await his return.
