The thesis investigates what message Towson in his later years tried to convey and what his life was like through the readings of Chikara Mochi(力餠) , a collection of fairy tales by Towson in his later years. Chikara Mochi is the fourth and last collection of fairy tales by Towson published in 17 years after he published three collections of fairy tales every three to four years from 1917. The difference from the previous fairy tales is that in this collection he excludes his own story. Another difference is that Chikara Mochi is a fairy tale for adults, which means it is intended to be read by all people. With these characteristics, this collection of fairy tales conveys the following messages. First, this work conveys the message of ``acceptance of diversity.`` Chikara Mochi shows us the complicated and diverse situations through animals and objects as well as humans. The interesting thing is that the tales contained in the same chapter express the contradictory ideas. It means that Towson tries to tell the readers to accept and acknowledge all the situations. The second message Towson tries to tell us is ``overcoming hardships.`` He tells the story of an old man, who was once a potter, in a realistic manner. In this tale, he emphasizes that we can overcome any obstacles, no matter how hard the situation is, if we persist in trying to fight it off. The messages of Chikara Mochi which urge readers ``to acknowledge diversity`` and ``to overcome hardships`` even in hardest times, say in 1940, are the ways Towson in his later life has taken his life journey. The fact that Towson titled this tales Chikara Mochi , which means ``rice cake for cheer``, reveals his intention. The significance of Chikara Mochi lies in the fact that he, for the first time in his career, presents a vision for overcoming hard reality, aside from his own comfort. It means that the motif of Chikara Mochi comes from the way Towson tries to overcome reality all through his life.
