Urashima-Taro

I focused on the concept of time in Japan. In this story he took care of time a lot as soon as he came to his senses. Japanese people have been cherished time since long ago, and Japanese people are said to be punctual. Also in this story the tortoise is described, and it is the symbol of long-lived. Three days mean three hundred years for tortoise. There is difference of concept of time between one (Japan) and another (foreign country). So I focused on time concept.
