About the book

Konjaku Monogatari is the largest collection of stories in Japan dating back to the medieval times and is comparable to the Indian work of Katha Saritsagar, the Ocean of Stories in scale. The Jataka Stones in Japan is an interesting and in-depth study of the Jataka tales present in the Indian section of Konjaku Monogatari and focuses on the evolution of these motifs in Japan. These range from the animal fables to the classical themes like Rsyasringa and folk tales such as Ubasute Yama. A comparative study of these motifs portrays the cultural similarities and contrasts between India and Japan. Based on primary sources this is a pioneer work on the presence of the Indian motifs in medieval Japanese Literature and its impact on Japanese life and culture. Contents Preface 1.
