  • The Carp appears to be a  brocaded carp of the type Taisho Sanke or Showa Sanke. The Legend of the Dragon's Gate tells the story of carp that may transform into dragons if they can leap up a massive waterfall [4]. As a consequence, carp are considered symbols of success and transformation in Japanese culture.
