Sentaro

Japanese - A man who travelled to the Land of Eternal Youth. When Sentaro prayed at the shrine of Jofuku, he received a small crane made of paper which turned into a real bird that carried him to the land where all the inhabitants, blessed (or cursed) with eternal life, longed for death. When he returned to his home, he found that he had been away for 300 years. Occasionally referred to as Sentaro.
