in much the same way as how Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm

Speaking of Grimm, when Sasaki Kizen passed away, linguist Kindaichi Kyōsuke said that Sasaki Kizen had been a Grimm of Japan.

he in fact prettie'd them up,

In a book about Yanagita Kunio, Professor Tsurumi Tarō has said that probably there had been 'raw' folk tales told by no-name 'plebeians' in Tōno and a young literature buff who attended universities in Tokyo (i.e. Sasaki Kizen) telling the folk tales was already a process of alteration.


Sasaki Kizen attended Tetsugaku-kan, which would later become Tōyō University, and Waseda University.
It is said that a reason why Sasaki Kizen attended Tetsugaku-kan was that he wanted to attend lectures by philosopher Inoue Enryō on yōkai.
Dr Inoue Enryō founded Tetsugaku-kan, and he was famous for his studies on yōkai.


Mishima Yukio enjoyed Tōno Monogatari as a literary work.

Quote:
 柳田國男氏の「遠野物語」は、明治四十三年に世に出た。日本民俗學の發祥の記念塔ともいふべき名高い名著であるが、私は永年これを文學として讀んできた。殊に何囘よみ返したかわからないのは、その序文である。名文であるのみではなく、氏の若き日の抒情と哀傷がにじんでゐる。魂の故鄕へ人々の心を拉し去る詩的な力にあふれてゐる。
