    SYNOPSES:

    “The Snail” (“Kagyu”)

    Taro Kaja is told by his Master to catch a snail for the Master's grandfather, as eating snails is believed to result in longevity. The Master tells Taro Kaja that a snail has a black head, carries a shell and horns sometimes grow from its head. On his way to the bamboo thicket, Taro Kaja, having never seen a real snail before, mistakes a Yamabushi (Warrior Priest) for one.

    “The Longevity Sack” (“Enmei Bukuro”)

    The Master of the house, seizing his opportunity when his terrifying Wife is away visiting her family, has Taro Kaja deliver divorce papers to her. The Wife, of course, returns in a furious rage, but the Master is too proud to change his mind despite his wife’s anger. The Wife then brings a large sack to take her share of their belongings. The Master says that, if she grants him the divorce, she can take whatever she wants. The Wife is overjoyed and starts looking for things to stuff into the sack, but can you guess the last item she puts in it?

    This work is a masterpiece that invites the audience to laugh at the subtleties of love between husband and wife.
