Definition: Tanuki, Topping Out, Dragon Gate

So many cool new words and terms in one short story that I’ll put it into two posts!

 

Tanuki

Japanese raccoon dog that looks like a raccoon but isn’t (or even close biologically)

 

Topping Out

Scandinavian practice of putting a tree or wreath on top of a new house and building to appease tree spirits, as if to say “thank you” to the forest for the wood used

 

Dragon Gate

Huge gaps in the middle of Southeast Asian skyscrapers to allow dragons to fly through from ocean to mountains.

Now this is a slightly crazy looking, but fun, concept that is taken very seriously!
