What's the story behind kantan no ayumi 2017/9/18 09:12
I know kantan no ayumi means "like the young man who tried to walk like the Kantan people, gave up, and forgot how to walk​," but what is the story/legend behind it? Who was this young man? Who were the Kantan people? What is this story even called? I've searched it a lot, but I can't come up with anything.

The origin is old China's story that written by Souji/Soushi(as Japanese reading).
But there is no proof of whether it is a true story or not, just also left as Kojiseigo of Japanese.

In Japanese Kojiseigo, "Rongo" by "Koshi" is most famous.
