The Dragon is one of four Japanese spiritual creatures called the "Four Guardians"; the other three being the Tortoise, the Unicorn (Kirin) and the Phoenix.
The dragon is worshiped as the Guardian of Water who controls the clouds and rain, freely moving across the sky, water and land. A dragon ascending into the sky is known as a Black Dragon and a symbol for good luck.
It's companion: a dragon descending towards the ground from the sky is known as a Blue Dragon.
