"Hearing stories from the fog and wind'' is a puppet theater poem for children presented to commemorate the 90th anniversary of Kenji Miyazawa's death. 

We bring you two stories: "Ari-to-Kinoko'' and "Shishiodori-no-hajimari"~The Beginning of the Deer Dance~,

"Ari-to-Kinoko''~The Ants & The Mushroom~ 

In the forest early in the morning. Small Ant soldiers stand guard. Suddenly, a suspicious object that shines white appears and gradually grows larger. The soldiers are in a panic!

 "Shishiodori-no-hajimari"~The Beginning of the Deer Dance~

Kaju goes to the mountains to collect mushrooms and meets four deer. They are very interested in the chestnut dumplings and tenugui(hand towel) that Kaju has left. As the setting sun shines brighter, the "Deer Dance" begins.
