Japanese New Year's card 2012 by piyo119 Japanese New Year's card 2012 by piyo119
Happy New Year, wishing you the very best for the year 2012!

This is my New Year's Card.
The big dragon treats child dragons to sweet adzuki soup with pieces of rice cake.

New Year's Card (Nengajo) is a card sent as a greeting for the new year.
Nengajo are sent with illustrations of that year's Chinese Zodiac and words of congratulations.
This is the year of DRAGON in Chinese astrology.

Sea horse is "竜の落とし子/Tatsu no otoshigo" in Japanese.
Tatsu no otoshigo mean dragon's illegitimate child .

In the Orient, dragons are auspicious animal.
The dragon protects the east and controlling water,the dragon of five talons shows the Chinese emperor.

Oriental dragons are a figure such as the snakes. Dragons have excellent corners and talons. Dragons hold a precious stone granting a wish in talons.
Shenron of dragon ball is image itself of dragons in Japan.

I am slightly interesting.
For Japanese, they are 爪.I translated it literally.
I consulted a dictionary.Right expression is talons.
Japanese does not have the words to express talons with a word.
