Dragons frequently appear in depictions of Mount Fuji as a symbol of felicity and as a reference to the deity that legend says resides in the mountain.
Asian dragons are rarely depicted as malevolent. Although fearsome and powerful, dragons are equally considered just, benevolent, and the bringers of wealth and good fortune.
