Koi fishes are often seen in water pools or rivers near temples and shrines. They wear various colors which gives beautiful vivid tints to the moving waters. But have you ever heard about the legend behind these sacred fishes?
An ancient tale says that koi fishes were swimming upstream the Yellow River, gaining strength by fighting against the current. When they finally reached the waterfall at the end of the river, the most determined ones tried to get to the top of the waterfall. It seemed like an impossible task but one koi finally reached the top and turned into a dragon! (Now you understand better why Magikarp turn into Gyarados at level 20...)
This powerful representation of a dragon legend is associated with perseverance, determination and strength for the ones able to excel themselves. Like the koi, never give up!

Ho scoperto poco prima di Natale questo sito e ho deciso di acquistare alcuni portafortuna. Temevo che i miei acquisti non arrivassero in tempo, ma sono arrivati con corriere in pochi giorni dall’ordine. I regali sono stati molto apprezzati per via della bellezza, qualità e anche per il pensiero ben augurante. Sicuramente comprerò di nuovo su questo sito che è perfetto per chi ama il Giappone! O anche per chi vuole augurare un po’ di fortuna!
I purchased one of then for myself and multiple as a gift including other types on here. There Christmas gifts. I really love how mine turned out and I can’t wait to gift the others to everyone else too.
I puchased this for my boyfriend as a gift and he loves it. Amazing quality and fast shipping! Would buy again.
High quality fabric (koi design). Highly recommend Omamori Shop. Lightning fast shipping from Japan to Hawaii (2 days). Mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian).
