Dragons in Shizuoka Prefecture 1


If you know where to look around you will find plenty looking after us in Shinto Shrines or looking at us in Parks or during festivals and where else!

Shall we look for them (pun intended!)?


Hamamtsu City is famous for its kite Festival, but this particular festival is little known!


Truly beautiful at night!


Komagata Shrine, Aoi Ku, shizuoka City!

Dragons can be found under eaves in Shinto Shrines!


Note that their tendrils and horns are coming in many shapes and size.
And their maws can either roar or laugh!


Komagata Shrine again!

You will find small ones pouring water out of their maws, too!


Unusual horns!


Surging forth out of nowhere!


You will also discover them on “happi/festival jackets”!


Discovered at the Shimada Obi Festival (held only every 3 years!)!


A flowery dragon at Hamana Lake Flower garden!


A fierce dragon spouting water in the main Shinto Shrine of Shuzenji, Izu Peninsula!


Another dragon lurking under the eaves of Sumiyoshi Shrine in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!


Definitely laughing!


Long tendrils again!


Dragons with kappa/water goblins at Tacchan Kappa Museum in Yaizu City!


A white dragon having fun at Hamana lake Flower Garden!


Endless fun!


Inviting you for a ride to discover more!
