Yes, it was sure that Taro was being rewarded by God as he loved his parents and could do anything to fulfil their wish. When his father wished to have sake, He wanted to get the sake which was expensive and he could not afford it so he decided to work harder. But with God’s blessing, he found a beautiful waterfall which was the source of magic sake for him. He took it for his father and gave it to him The waterfall gave cold water to those who were selfish and greedy. It gave the sake only to Taro who was selflessly serving his parents. Thus, we can say that this was God’s way of rewarding Taro for his loyalty to his parents.
