Hidesato

Japanese - A warrior. He undertook to kill the huge centipede that had taken all the children and grandchildren of the Dragon King of Lake Biwa. The first two arrows he shot when the monster next appeared had no effect but the third, moistened with saliva, killed the centipede. As reward, the Dragon King gave Hidesato a never-empty bag of rice, an endless roll of silk, a cauldron that cooked without fire and two bells. He was thereafter known as My Lord Bag of Rice. Referred to as Hidesato, My Lord Bag of Rice, My Lord Bag of Rice, Tawara Toda or Tawara Toda.
