The Bamboo Princess

The story of the Japanese Fairy Tale, 
“The Bamboo Princess”,  
dates back around 1,000 years ago.
A very old bamboo cutter and his wife were childless.  
One day the bamboo cutter was hard at workwhen he 
noticed a golden light shining from inside one of the bamboo.  

He carefully cut it open and to his surprise he found inside  
a small baby girl – only as big as his thumb.  He excitedly hurried 
 home with the baby girl to show his  wife.  They were afraid to leave the baby 
alone, so they raised her as their own child and named her Bamboo Princess.   
 Many years past by and Bamboo Princess grew into a very  beautiful 
young lady.  Princes from all  over the land came and wanted to
marry Bamboo Princess.  Being older, Bamboo Princess knew that she
could not marry and that she would only be on earth for a short 
time longer  only long enough to care for the old bamboo cutter and his wife.
Bamboo Princess knew that when the next full moon appeared,  it would 
be time to leave and return back to the moon where she came from.  
The bamboo cutter and his wife were so sad to  know the Bamboo 
Princess would leave them, but they were so greatful that she came to 
be with them and that she brought such happiness and good fortune.  
The old bamboo cutter and his wife would  smile everytime they 
looked up at the night sky and saw a full moon.
