Tsuki no Usagi is one of Japan's most popular folktales:
One night, the man on the moon came down to earth disguised as a beggar. He chanced upon a fox, a monkey, and a rabbit (usagi) and asked for some food. The fox brought him fish from a stream, and the monkey brought fruit from the trees, but the rabbit could only offer grass. So he told the beggar to build a fire, and when it was built, threw himself onto the flames to offer himself to the man. Amazed by the rabbit's generosity, the beggar transformed back into the man on the moon and pulled the rabbit from the fire. To honor the rabbit's kindness, he carried the rabbit back to the moon to live with him. Now, if you look at the full moon, you can see the outline of the rabbit pounding mochi on the moon.
