5 火 Week1 Meteorite in the Cornfield
An elderly bamboo artist is being interviewed.
年配の竹細工師がインタビューされている
Mr. Taketori, did you have any inkling this meteorite crashed on your land?
I thought there was a strong possibility it had because I saw the whole bamboo bush shine brightly.
That must have been shocking!
Yeah! And a couple of minutes later in the bush I found this gold bamboo tree, and this baby sitting inside.
Experts have confirmed that it’s a human baby girl.
Right. Here, hold her.
Oh, my. She must weigh a good 3 kirograms!
Yes.
Does she have a name?
Yes. Since we found her in a bamboo, we named her Takeko.
Wonderful!

The story sounds familiar.
Sounds very familiar. The original story must be a goo 700 or 800 years old.
Maybe even older.
Wow!
Maybe.
