At long last, Kaguya was returning home. As she leapt into the night sky, her destination shining brilliantly, the leaves rustled mournfully in the wind. She knew it was not just the rabbits that had accompanied her, but the entirety of nature itself. As she was never to leave her domain again, Kaguya offered her heartfelt gratitude to all who saw to her care.
Kaguya, Kaguya-hime, or Princess Kaguya (means "shining" in Japanese) is the main character in "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter" (Taketori Monogatari), also known as "Princess Kaguya" (Kaguya Hime), a 10th-century folktale, thought to be the oldest Japanese folktale. It primarily details the life of a mysterious and very beautiful girl called Kaguya-hime, who was discovered as a baby inside the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant by Okina (literally, "old fella") and nursed by his wife Ona ("woman"). She is said to be from Tsuki-no-Miyako ("The Capital of the Moon").
