[No.0007 Kanji] Japanese Dragon

a kanji for a japanese dragon
This kanji stands for Japanese dragon, and is pronounced "tatsu". Foreign dragon is stated as "龍 ryu" by the way.

You can learn here about animal symbols. The "辰" is  often used in Oriental Zodiac. It is 5th animal. One of animal symbols is given to us by the year you were born.

The photo below is a picture of "辰". It's similar to snake while foreign dragon is similar to dinosaur. Both of Japanese culture and other cultures have the same creature in myth. It is surprising, isn't it?
