Taro was an energetic hard working young woodcutter, who lived with his parents on a lonely hillside. All day long he chopped wood in the forest. He earned very little money inspite of working very hard. He loved his parents very much and he look care of them. He was very worried about getting the sake for his father as it could have provided him warmth and was good for his heart. He was an obedient boy so he decided to work harder than before for getting the expensive sake. He chopped and cut more wood to earn more money.
