Ogre carnival around the Seto Inland Sea
A giant picture book spreads across folding screens inside an old house, connecting the legend of Momotaro (Peach Boy) and his victory over the ogres on Megijima with the artist’s hometown across the Seto Inland Sea in Hiroshima. Ogres disguised as sea creatures race freely about the islands of the Seto Inland Sea.
