This story is about a boy named Hagurosan who was a small village boy who was on trip to the mountain to offer a cake (made by his mother) to the spirits. But in midway he felt very hungry and ate the cake. He requested the spirits to forgive him and gave a real silver coin which he found before leaving and also asked them to help all poor and helpless people and this is how he got stuck in that temple. The spirits granted his wish, but he had to keep picking up coins from the entrance of the gate to collect enough money for his wish to be fulfilled until the day the coins stopped appearing.
Others should read this story so that they can understand that only asking for wishes is not enough. To make them fulfilled we should do the hard work and later we would definitely get our reward like Hagurosan got, after he became old collecting the coins and died later the spirits gave him back his childhood which he had lost by turning him into a child again and he could then live in a better world made by himself.
This concludes that “The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.”
The believe that gods and angles still exists and are protect the world combined by the idea of childhood being the best time in a man's life , make the book fascinating for the minotaur . the minotaur might find it interesting to know that we should not mourn or grief for what we loose , because it is returned to us , when our soul is set free .
