Commonly illustrated together in Japanese artwork, the "ryuhou" (Dragon and Phoenix) is the emperor and the emperoress. In Feng Shui, the dragon is seen as the yang while the phoenix is seen as the yin and symbolize meanings of everlasting love and eternal matrimony.

Dragons are well respected mythical creatures in Japan and are seen as water deities that control rainfall and all water bodies and has power over harvest, thus, symbolizing wealth and prosperity. It is believe that Japanese dragons are more closely tied to water as Japan is on an island that is surrounded by water. Japanese dragons in particular are typically portrayed with serpent-like bodies and no wings (unlike dragons portrayed in other cultures).

The phoenix in Japan reflects a positive meaning (like most cultures). In Japan, it is thought that the phoenix is a symbol of the imperial household and also represents power and strength.

About Danitrio Genkai Series:

The owner of Danitrio had called this series of pens "Genkai", meaning "limit" in Japanese. The intent was that this would be the largest pen series of Danitrio and no other pen would be larger than it. Little did he know that later on he would develop a series with an even larger pen called the Yokozuna.
