Mimei Ogawa
Birth: Apr. 7, 1882
Death: May 11, 1961

Author. Born "Kensaku Ogawa," he is known as "The Father of Japanese fairytale literature" and often though of as "Japan's answer to Hans Christian Andersen." His fairytales all reflect a romanticism and a love of the somewhat unforgiving natural environment of the area. One of his most famous tales is "The Mermaid and the Red Candles." (bio by: Warrick L.
