  • Osaka
  • I am fine .
  • Hi, how are you?
  • Kyoto
  • Once upon a time in the country of Japan there lived two frogs, one of whom made his home in a ditch near the town of Osaka, on the sea coast, while the other dwelt in a clear little stream which ran through the city of Kyoto.
  • Osaka
  • I wish we were more bigger so we could see the towns we are going to.
  • Kyoto
  • Osaka
  • Why don't we stand on each other and we will be able to see the towns .
  • Kyoto
  • At such a great distance apart, they had never even heard of each other; but, funnily enough, the idea came into both their heads at once that they should like to see a little of the world, and the frog who lived at Kyoto wanted to visit Osaka, and the frog who lived at Osakawished to go to Kyoto, where the great Mikado had his palace.
  • Osaka
  • Ribbit .........
  • Kyoto
  • They looked at each other for a moment without speaking and then fell into conversation, explaining the cause of their meeting so far from their homes. It was delightful to find that they both felt the same wish--to learn a little more of their native country--and as there was no sort of hurry they stretched themselves out in a cool, damp place, and agreed that they would have a good rest before they parted to go their ways.
  • Oh god ! Kyoto is same as Osaka it is not worth a long travel
  • Home Sweet Home !
  • "What a pity we are not bigger," said the Osaka frog; "for then we could see both towns from here, and tell if it is worth our while going on." "Oh, that is easily managed," returned the Kyoto frog. "We have only got to stand up on our hind legs, and hold onto each other, and then we can each look at the town he is travelling to."
  • ya..
  • This idea pleased the Osaka frog so much that he at once jumped up and put his front paws on the shoulder of his friend, who had risen also. There they both stood, stretching themselves as high as they could, and holding each other tightly, so that they might not fall down. The Kyoto frog turned his nose towards Osaka, and the Osaka frog turned his nose towards Kyoto; but the foolish things forgot that when they stood up their great eyes lay in the backs of their heads and that though their noses might point to the places to which they wanted to go, their eyes beheld the places from which they had come.
  • "Dear me!" cried the Osaka frog, "Kyoto is exactly like Osaka. It is certainly not worth such a long journey. I shall go home!""If I had had any idea that Osaka was only a copy of Kyoto I should never have travelled all this way," exclaimed the frog from Kyoto, and as he spoke he took his hands from his friend's shoulders, and they both fell down on the grass. Then they took a polite farewell of each other and set off for home again, and to the end of their lives, they believed that Osaka and Kyoto, which are as different to look at as two towns can be, were as alike as two peas.
