Japanese dragon lore comes from a mythological animal of Chinese origin in which is mysterious being.

Dragon head that of a camel, his eyes those of a rabbit, his antlers those of a deer, neck that of a snake, his belly that of a clam, his scales those of a carp, his claws those of an eagle. his soles those of a tiger, his ears those of a cow.

According to most sources, the dragon of China and Japan resemble each other.But there are some difference for example, Chinese dragon has five claws but Japanese one has only three. And Chinese dragon has a gem but Japanese one not, and so on.

But actually there are various stories and the same as well there are various dragons pictures in Japan.

Dragon lore is traditionally associated with Buddhist temples and as well as Shinto shrines.

Dragon god faith is a form of Shinto religious belief that worships dragons as water god. Dragons in my art mean like that.
