In Japanese folklore, dragons are depicted as majestic and benevolent creatures with the power to manipulate the elements, particularly water. They are revered for their ability to bring rainfall and are closely tied to rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water. It is believed that dragons reside in these bodies of water and can cause natural disasters, such as floods, if they become agitated or displeased.
The appearance of Japanese dragons, known as yokai, is distinct and easily recognizable. They possess a long, serpentine body and four legs that end in sharp claws. Unlike many other dragon depictions, they lack wings and often have a large, curled tail. Their scales are large and a mane of fire runs along their back, adding to their intimidating appearance. They are a popular subject in traditional Japanese art forms such as ukiyo-e woodblock prints, and can also be found in temple and shrine decorations, as well as on traditional clothing and household items.
