Once upon a time in Shinshu province, there lived a young sharecropper, who took a good care of his parent.

 

His name was Yamurano Yasuke.

 

He was an honest and hardworking man.

 

But, his family was in poverty.

He thought that he would save it.

 

He loosened the string of the trap and released the pheasant.

 

これは一つ助けてやろうと、罠の糸をゆるめて山鳥を逃がしましたが・・・
