Home > Traditional Japanese Design Dragon



In Japan, the dragon is connected to worship of the god of water and dragon legends still exist throughout Japan.

The dragon is a dignified creature, with horns resembling those of a deer, the head of a camel, the eyes of a demon, the neck of a snake, the belly of a serpent, the scales of a fish, the talons of a hawk, the paws of a tiger and the ears of a cow.

It wears a beard and precious gems under its chin. The dragon does not naturally cause harm to humans, but it becomes enraged if someone touches the one upside-down scale at the bottom of its throat. Anyone venturing to do so is said to suffer immediate death.
