Tamatebako by kGoggles Tamatebako by kGoggles
...One day, Urashima Tarō no longer remembered how long he had stayed at Ryugu Palace. He started to miss his parents and decided it was time for him to go home. Otohime was sad to see him go, and as proof that he was a guest at Ryugu Palace, gave him a mysterious box - a tamatebako. She warned that he should never open it, and bade him farewell...

Here is the last of my Japanese Folktales illustrations. 
I have compiled all my sketched and paintings with the folktales into a book: youtu.be/2QJMtQ-BIIY

Beautiful colors and composition!  I love how the fish are swirling around the focal point, and it's great finding all the various sea life~  Gorgeous work!

I'm sure they do!  Too bad he finds out, too! 

p.s. when I saw only the title this morning, the first thing that popped into my head was Jet talking to Ed about it, haha.  "Tamatebako is the turtle?"

This painting is too beautiful! I don't know where to start but the sea creatures, there are so much of them and they are nicely painted, especially the jellyfishes, they are really pretty. 
The dragon and the characters are absolutely stunning!
