The translation of the name "UKIGUMO" (Thanks to Yamsi in Tokyo!) "FLOATING CLOUD":

This is Floating cloud, but it is not Rain Cloud. "Uki" means floating, "gumo (kumo)" is the cloud. That are the clouds that are floating in a sky in a fine day happily, not connected cloud, independent one, white, puffy, round ones. We can see these white floating clouds on a beautiful day. Rain Clouds are dark gray for raining, It is not these ones at all. On the Ukigumo, we don't say Rain Cloud.
