Twins Momotaro and Momoko have decided it's time. Time to vanquish the Oni (Ogres) that have been pillaging, vandalizing and polluting the countryside along Momo No Kawa (Peach River) for as long as any villager can remember. But the twins know they cannot do it alone, and as they travel to Oni Island, they encounter the fierce Inu (Dogs), the clever and slapstick Saru (Monkeys), and the intellectual and ephemeral Kijii (Birds). To have any chance of overcoming the fierce Oni, they'll have to overcome their differences first. Can they work together to return peace and freedom to their homes? Traditional festival music, folk dance, Taiko drumming and Japanese language are part of this colorful adaptation of the classic Japanese folktale.
