In fact, there is a theory that the story of momotaro is based on the story of the imperial family in the Okayama District, which was the origin of the story of the imperial family, Kibitsu no Mikoto, who subjugated the Winra clan that occupied Kibi province. As a result, there are many places in Okayama District where the mototaro theme is seen, and there are many legendary places where momotaro is said to be.
The easiest place to meet in Okayama is the statue of Momotaro in front of Okayama Station. It is said that no one will find the wrong place here. Momotaro, born out of Momoko, is a hero of justice. He conquered dogs, monkeys, and pheasants with Okayama’s snacks, Kibi dumplings, and took them to destroy ghosts everywhere. In front of Okayama Station, the street that exists like Renmin South Road is called Momotaro Odori, and there is also an interesting Momotaro Museum in the beautiful area of Kurashiki.
Momotaro is a boy who popped out of a big peach. When he grows up, he goes around fighting monsters. Isn’t it a bit like the Japanese version of Monkey King, except that Monkey King popped out of a rock. Okayama is rich in peaches, so Momotaro's hometown is Okayama. In the square in front of Okayama Station, there is a bronze statue of Momotaro with his little friend monkey and dog, and a bird on his shoulder.
There are Momotaro everywhere in Okayama. The easiest thing to see is the Momotaro sculpture in front of Okayama Station. Holding one hand up as if looking into the distance, under his feet are his good friends, dogs and monkeys, and follow Momotaro to destroy the devil everywhere. In addition to this, pay attention to the water hole cover at the foot of the street, which also has the appearance of Momotaro. There is also a street called Momotaro Odori.
I read all the stories in different versions when I was a child and finally came to punch in.
