Day XXVIII: ともかγ₯き :shell:

Clicked on the story advertised on the home page of hukumusume. Maybe it’s just on this story, or that I didn’t notice it before (most likely option), but it tells you where the story originates from, in this case it’s Mie Prefecture. Which leads to another really handy section of this site, information about all the prefectures such as: symbols (flowers, trees, animals), local folktales, size, population, cuisine specialties, attractions, schools… seriously so much information and so many links! This site is insane!

Anywayyyy

There’s a YouTube vid with this one, which is just the audio played with the pictures, still, fun to watch and listen.

To say that this is for kids, this story is pretty dark.
