Edo Period Momotaro (Peach Boy) Hirado Okimono
This beautiful example of Hirado is based on a Japanese folk tale of Momotaro (Peach Boy), a very brave boy who's mother found him in a peach by the shore while doing laundry. When he grew up, he decided to fight a band of oni for their treasure. Along the way, he met three friends, a dog, a monkey and a pheasant who agreed to help him. They were successful, and Momotaro gave credit to his good friends. The story highlights how much you can achieve if you are brave and have loyal friends.
