Hagoromo (The Feather Mantle) is the Japanese story about a magical feather mantle belonging to a Tennin (dancing swan). A group of fishermen were walking at night when they found the Hagoromo. The Tennin asked the fishermen for the Hagoromo back as she was not able to revisit heaven without it. The fishermen promised to return it if the Tennin performed their dance for them.
