Long, long ago there lived an old man and his wife in a village. They had no children, so they had prayed and asked God for a baby every day. "God,please give us a baby. Even if it is an inch baby, that's okay. " One day, to their surprise, they were blessed with a small baby, whose height was only one inch or so. They named him "Issun-boshi", One-Inch Boy.. Cited from "Old Stories of Japan"(http://www.g eocities.co.jp/HeartLand-Gaien/7211/)
