Hint of Wispy Flame

Hint of Wispy Flame

Once upon a time,
a fox fell in love with a kind man
and assumed the form of a woman 
in order to marry him.

The couple had a child and lived in happy
contentment until one day, 
when the child caught a glimpse of the fox’s tail. 

Finding it difficult to stay,
the fox parted from her husband and child forever.

KATE reinterprets this old Japanese tale, 

The Fox’s Wedding 

as a story of a new heroine, 

who faces and shapes her own destiny.

Once upon a time, there lived a poor man. 
One evening, a beautiful girl wandered into his home and asked to stay the night.
To return the favor she started to weave items for him.She advised him, 
“Please do not look in while I’m weaving.”
But the man couldn’t resist and took a peek, 
and found a crane weaving with its own feathers.The crane was in fact the one he had rescued.
Once seen she became sad and flew away in despair.
