* BittersweetEnding: the ending of “Earless Ho’ichi.” Ho’ichi has lost his outer ears and gone through a traumatic experience... but his story makes him famous, he ends up becoming a wealthy singer, and more importantly for him, he has a purpose in life, singing to honor the dead, and hopefully giving them some measure of peace. This is in marked contrast to the other three stories, each of which has a decidedly DownerEnding.

* BilingualBonus: You might be able to guess the ending of 'The Woman of the Snow" anyway, but if you know that "Yuki"--the name of the woodcutter's wife--is the Japanese for "snow", you'll definitely guess the ending.
