Abstract: The story of Tobikura in Ujishui Monogatarishi, a narrative collection compiled at the beginning of the 13th century, introduced me to the short prose tales that are characteristic genre of classical literature. This fanciful tale narrating how Monk Myoren's magic begging boelw absconded with an entire storehouse filled with rice by carrying it up into the air, was told with such directness and simplicity that it held a special charm for me.
