Momotaro is a Japanese folktale about a boy born from a giant peach. The story is set in the village of Okayama, where an old woman and her husband are washing clothes in a river when they find a giant peach floating downstream. The old woman takes the peach home and cuts it open, to find a baby boy inside. She and her husband name the boy Momotaro, which means 'Peach Boy.'

Momotaro grows up to be a strong and brave young man. One day, he decides to go to Onigashima, or Demon Island, to defeat the ogres that have been terrorizing the village. Along the way, he meets a dog, a monkey, and a pheasant, who all agree to help him on his quest.

When Momotaro and his animal companions arrive at Onigashima, they confront the ogres. The ogres are initially amused by Momotaro's small size, but they quickly realize that he is a formidable opponent. Momotaro and his animal companions fight bravely, and eventually defeat the ogres.

With the ogres defeated, Momotaro and his animal companions return to the village with a treasure chest full of gold and jewels. They use the treasure to rebuild the village and help the villagers who have been suffering from the ogres' attacks.

Momotaro is a classic hero story, and it is one of the most popular folktales in Japan. It teaches children the importance of courage, determination, and teamwork.
