They were originally common carp and were later domesticated and bred to produce certain colors. Chinese invaders brought koi to japan, where the fish flourished. According to Chinese and Japanese myth there was once a. As they swam, they gained strength by pushing against the current.
However, on the Yellow River, there is a waterfall. Once the fish reached the waterfall, most turned back and just went with the current because it became too hard. The ones who remained continued to try to reach the top of the waterfall. These koi kept trying for 100 years. At last, one koi successfully leaped to the top of the waterfall. To reward this dedicated koi, the gods turned it into a beautiful golden dragon. The falls have become known as the “Dragon’s Gate”. And legend has it that to this day; any koi that has the strength and perseverance to complete to journey up Dragon’s Gate will become a heavenly dragon.
