Also Japanese mythology believes that its islands form a great sleeping dragon and that earthquakes aren’t more than laps in the the same bed. Japanese divine dragons relate the mysterious lights in the sky that move between the forest and the sea. So, in that distant land, there is a legend about a light that ascends flies towards the mountains and the sea. It remains there hung an old pine at the gates of a Buddhist temple.

I think it appropriate to put an excerpt from the book of tea Okakuro Kakuzo who describes in this way the Dragon: the dragon is the spirit of Enroscado change in unfathomable depths of the sea it unscrews in the stormy clouds, cleansed the horsehair in the darkness of turbulent eddies.
