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!
