Join your kids on an Epic quest! Prepare your practical and magical gear, with the tools and help of our guides, and then embark on a mythic quest where you will face the Wild Dogs of Heaven and other challenges of mind and body, before you reach the shores of the Dragon Sea, behold another journey enacted by our spirits, and finally arrive at the temple of Ice Cream and Bengali Dance!

Urashima Taro

Urashima Taro is an honourable, hard-working man in a tiny fishing village in Feudal Japan. One day, he comes across a group of kids messing around with a turtle. Urashima promptly saves the turtle without second thought. Later, fishing at sea, Urashima Taro was met by a talking turtle! Who tells him of a vast underwater kingdom, and whisks him away on a journey to begin his new life.
