This storyboard does not have a description.
The Emperor's gardens are so beautiful, but why does he allow such a plain bird to live in our forests?
In the Emperor of China's vast forests, there lived a nightingale.
Oh my... the nightingale's voice is so lovely. It is a shame he does not look as beautiful as he sounds.
But when the bird opened its mouth, the most lovely song flowed out.
Meanwhile in Japan... the Japanese emperor had heard of the nightingale's beautiful voice in China. He longed to hear it for himself.
To the emperor of China- I long to hear your marvellous nightingale sing. I will arrive in two days time to it for myself. -The emperor of Japan
When the Japanese emperor arrived and heard the nightingale's beautiful song, he was overcome with joy.
I must find a way to repay you for letting me hear this song. If the nightingale only looked as beautiful as he sounded.
The Japanese emperor's slight on the bird's appearance angered the Chinese emperor. He loved the bird's voice, and did not care about how beautiful the bird was.
I love you just the way you are, nightingale.
A few days later, a package with a note arrived at the palace from the Japanese emperor. It was a mechanical nightingale, with a recording of the nightingale's sweet song. The fake nightingale was encrusted with jewels.
I hope you enjoy this gift. It is a small token compared to the great joy you gave me when you let me hear the nightingale.
