Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. KintarÅ is a folk hero from Japanese folklore. A child of superhuman strength, he was raised by a mountain hag on Mount Ashigara. He became friendly with the animals of the mountain, and later, after catching Shutendouji, the terror of the region around Mount Ooe, he became a loyal follower of Minamoto no Yorimitsu under the new name Sakata Kintoki. He is a popular figure in noh and kabuki drama, and it is a custom to put up a KintarÅ doll on Boy''s Day in the hope that boys will become equally brave and strong. KintarÅ is supposedly based on a real man, named Sakata Kintoki, who lived during the Heian period and probably came from what is now the city of Minami-ashigara. He served as a retainer for the samurai Minamoto no Yorimitsu and became well known for his abilities as a warrior. As with many larger-than-life individuals, his legend has grown with time.
