Momotaro, Folklore From Japan


A long time ago, there lived a husband and a wife in a hut. They were old. They did not have any children.

One day, the old woman was washing their clothes in a river. Suddenly, she found a big peach. She was so happy. She carefully brought it home and planned to eat it with her husband.

The old man was also happy to see the big peach. He immediately cut the peach. When the peach was split into two parts, they found a baby boy inside the peach!

The baby boy was crying loudly. The old couple was confused and did not know what to do.
"Maybe he is hungry," said the old man.

Well, they did not have any baby food, therefore the couple gave him rice. The baby ate the rice very fast. Soon, the baby was relaxed and slept.

The old couple was still confused, however they were also very happy. Their dream to have a child finally came true. They named the baby boy Momotaro. Momo means peach and Taro is a common Japanese boy's name.

Momotaro grew as a very strong kid. He was a kid but he had a power just like an adult. Everyday, he became stronger and stronger. Soon, he became very famous. Everybody knew him as a wender kid, a kid who had a strong power.

Though he was famous, Momotaro was still humble. He was polite and very helpful and never misused his power.

One day, Momotaro heard that some ogres would come and attack them. Momotaro was angry. He wanted to stop them. He planned to go to their island and killed those ogres.

The old couple did not agree. They were worried that the ogres would kill Momotaro. However, Momotaro convinced them that he could handle those ogres.

The old couple was helpless. They just prayed that their beloved son would come home safely.

Momotaro started his journey. A dog asked him where he would go. Yes, Momotaro was able to talk to animals. He told the dog that he would go to ogres' island. The dog asked if he could join him. Momotaro said yes.

Later, Momotaro met a bird and a monkey. After they knew that Momotaro would go to ogres' island, they asked if they could join Momotaro.

Momotaro said yes. Later, Momotaro gave the dog, the bird, and the monkey a special cake. The cake would give them strong power.

Later, they arrived at the ogres' island. They found a castle. The gate was locked. The bird flew over and unlocked it from the inside.

When they were inside the castle, the ogres attacked them. Momotaro fought bravely! The dog bit the ogres and the monkey scratched them. The bird used his beak to attack the ogres.

The ogres gave   up! "Please, stop! We give up," begged the ogres.

"We will stop but you have to promise not to come to my place and hurt the people!" yelled Momotaro.

"We promise," said ogres weakly.

Later, Momotaro and the animals went home. The old couple welcomed him happily. They were grateful that their son came home safely.

Terjemahan Indonesia :

Dahulu kala, hiduplah seorang suami dan seorang istri di sebuah pondok. Mereka sudah tua. Mereka tidak punya anak.

Suatu hari, wanita tua itu mencuci pakaian mereka di sungai. Tiba-tiba, dia menemukan buah persik yang besar. Dia sangat bahagia. Dia dengan hati-hati membawanya pulang dan berencana untuk memakannya bersama suaminya.

Orang tua itu juga senang melihat buah persik besar. Dia segera memotong buah persik. Ketika buah persik dibagi menjadi dua bagian, mereka menemukan bayi laki-laki di dalam buah persik!

Bayi laki-laki itu menangis dengan keras. Pasangan tua itu bingung dan tidak tahu harus berbuat apa.
"Mungkin dia lapar," kata lelaki tua itu.

Yah, mereka tidak punya makanan bayi, oleh karena itu pasangan itu memberinya nasi. Bayi itu memakan beras dengan sangat cepat. Segera, bayi itu santai dan tidur.

Pasangan tua itu masih bingung, namun mereka juga sangat senang. Mimpi mereka untuk memiliki anak akhirnya menjadi kenyataan. Mereka menamai bayi laki-laki Momotaro. Momo berarti peach dan Taro adalah nama anak laki-laki Jepang yang umum.

Momotaro tumbuh sebagai anak yang sangat kuat. Dia masih kecil tapi dia punya kekuatan seperti orang dewasa. Setiap hari, dia menjadi lebih kuat dan lebih kuat. Segera, dia menjadi sangat terkenal. Semua orang tahu dia sebagai bocah penyembuh, anak yang memiliki kekuatan yang kuat.

Meskipun dia terkenal, Momotaro masih rendah hati. Dia sopan dan sangat membantu dan tidak pernah menyalahgunakan kekuasaannya.

Suatu hari, Momotaro mendengar bahwa beberapa raksasa akan datang dan menyerang mereka. Momotaro marah. Dia ingin menghentikan mereka. Dia berencana pergi ke pulau mereka dan membunuh ogre-ogre itu.

Pasangan tua itu tidak setuju. Mereka khawatir para raksasa akan membunuh Momotaro. Namun, Momotaro meyakinkan mereka bahwa dia bisa menangani ogre-ogre itu.

Pasangan tua itu tidak berdaya. Mereka hanya berdoa agar putra kesayangan mereka akan pulang dengan selamat.

Momotaro memulai perjalanannya. Seekor anjing bertanya ke mana dia akan pergi. Ya, Momotaro bisa berbicara dengan binatang. Dia memberi tahu anjing itu bahwa dia akan pergi ke pulau raksasa. Anjing itu bertanya apakah dia bisa bergabung dengannya. Momotaro bilang ya.

Kemudian, Momotaro bertemu dengan seekor burung dan seekor monyet. Setelah mereka tahu bahwa Momotaro akan pergi ke pulau raksasa, mereka bertanya apakah mereka bisa bergabung dengan Momotaro.

Momotaro bilang ya. Lantas, Momotaro memberi anjing, burung, dan monyet itu kue khusus. Kue itu akan memberi mereka kekuatan yang dahsyat (kekuatan super).

Kemudian, mereka tiba di pulau raksasa itu. Mereka menemukan sebuah kastil. Gerbang itu terkunci. Burung itu terbang dan membuka kuncinya dari dalam.

Ketika mereka berada di dalam kastil, para ogre menyerang mereka. Momotaro bertempur dengan gagah berani! Anjing itu menggigit ogre dan monyet menggaruknya. Burung itu menggunakan paruhnya untuk menyerang ogre.

Para ogre menyerah! "Tolong, berhenti! Kita menyerah," keluh si ogre.

"Kami akan berhenti tetapi kamu harus berjanji untuk tidak datang ke tempatku dan menyakiti orang-orang!" teriak Momotaro.

"Kami berjanji," kata raksasa dengan lemah.

Belakangan, Momotaro dan para hewan pulang ke rumah. Pasangan tua itu menyambutnya dengan gembira. Mereka bersyukur bahwa putra mereka pulang dengan selamat.
