Once upon a time, there lived a gambler. One day after losing all of his money gambling, he was climbing up a hill feeling sorry for himself. He suddenly turned around and muttered to himself, "Aahhh. Today is not my day. I wonder if nothing good at all will happen. I want to go to a big city like Osaka or Kyoto and try to get into a really big game, and not let this small town smother me." He then began searching his clothing, and pulled out a small coin with a hole in it. He then said, "Ah, I still have this coin. But just this one I would never gamble." The gambler then peeked through the hole and pretended he could see far away places. "Oh, there it is! I can see Kyoto! Kyoto is such a beautiful city. Now, there it is! I can see Osaka. There it is. Osaka is a jumping town!" As he was saying this a Tengu appeared and said, "You're saying that Kyoto appeared and Osaka appeared, but can you really see Osaka from the center of that coin?" The gambler replied, "Yes, I can. This is my most valued possession. Kyoto, Osaka, I can see any place I want." "Is there really such a thing?" asked the Tengu. it is. There it is. I can see Edo." "Lend me that coin for a bit, won't you?" "No way! It's a priceless treasure." "Just for a second." "No. Nope. There is no way I'm lending it to you."

The two went on to exchange their most valued possessions. The Tengu then looked into the hole of the coin and said, "Hey! I can't see anything! No Kyoto. No Osaka. No nothing! You duped me, didn't you?" the Tengu turned around, but it was too late. The gambler was nowhere to be seen. He had put on the invisible cloak while the Tengu was looking through the hole of the coin. are you! Give me back my invisible cloak!" He realized that it really worked. Extremely pleased, he scrambled down the hill and went to town. the real thing! I got my hands on something great!" Upon realizing what he had, he became ecstatic. First he headed to the nearest pub, went in and starting so he headed to the dumpling shop. There he stuffed himself, and again nobody noticed. He then went home, took off the invisible cloak, and called to his wife. "I'm home! Today was my lucky and he gave his wife the stolen kimono. The gambler, being full of food and drink, took off the cloak, threw it in the corner and fell right asleep. Lesson Code: 0_I40_010307 January 3rd 2007 / 2007 1 3 ...
