The word Uroko translates to ‘scale’, like that of a fish or snake. In Japanese folklore, Kiyohime, a lovelorn woman entranced by a traveling monk, is often depicted in a kimono donning this pattern. The meaning of her garb is revealed when her unrequited admiration turns to anger — an emotion so powerful that she is consumed by it, transforming into a monstrous and unstoppable dragon.
