Daikoku Sama

imageThis happy-looking fella is the god of wealth, farmers, food and good fortune.

He can be found at Hasedera, grinning out from the side of the Daikoku-do (Daikoku Hall), where Hasedera’s original Daikoku Sama statue is.

The past few days, we’ve been on the Shichifukujin (Seven Gods of Luck) tour of Kamakura, filling up our goshuincho (stamp book) with calligraphy and stamps at the eight temples and shrines on the tour (Benzaiten gets doubled).
