From April 6 to May 18, 2010, animated adaptations of SGI President Daisaku Ikeda's original children's stories were aired in Cuba by the state-run broadcasting station, Cubavisión. This is the first time the series has been broadcast in Cuba.

Seven stories—"The Princess of the Desert Kingdom," "Rainbow Mountain," "The Cherry Tree," "The Prince and the Coral Sea," "Kanta and the Deer," "The Himalayan Kingdom of Light" and "The Prince and the White Horse"—were broadcast on Tuesday evenings.


The animation series was also shown at several schools in Cuba for educational purposes. At Mártires del Corynthia elementary school in Playa de la Capital, a teacher commented that the anime conveyed important educational messages on the importance of life, the value of communication and the relationship between human beings and nature.

The school's principal also requested that the animation series be shown at the school again, so more students would have the opportunity to learn from its educational messages.
