Origin[]

The Giant Oarfish in Japanese folklore, is said to be a messenger of the Ryugu-jo, and is also said to be a omen of earthquakes. The Ryūgū-jō is the undersea palace of Ryūjin, the dragon god of the sea. Depending on the version of the legend, it is built from red and white coral, or from solid crystal. The inhabitants of the palace were Ryūjin's families and servants, which were various denizens of the sea. In some legend, on each of the four sides of the palace is a different season, and one day within the palace is equal to a century outside its boundaries. The most famous legend about the palace concerns Urashima Tarō's visit to Ryūgū-jō for three days.
