Reisen Tou (The island of beautiful fountain) 

-Island to honor the water source-

 

Snakes are widely respected all over the world as a god who controls the wisdom, and てthe symbolism of eternal life by molting.

They also have been honored as a god of water from Jomon era in Japan and as a messenger of gods.

I created an island that praises the water source by composing the traditional Japanese water pattern and a white snake.
