Episode 5 – Flower Power!

Episode 5 – Flower Power!

This week on MYTH, we’re headed to the Far East for a pair of folktales from Japan.  Both stories heavily feature the peony, but they take very different paths.  The first is the tale of a lonely girl in feudal Japan.  She is to be married to a man she’s never met and she’s not sure how she feels about it.  The second story is about a rich, drunken frat boy of a samurai who falls in love with a beautiful woman in the woods.  Unfortunately, he’s a drunken frat boy, so hijinks ensue.  Then, in Gods and Monsters, we meet a ghostly Japanese school girl because I couldn’t do my first story from Japan and NOT tell a schoolgirl ghost story.
