Japanese Wealth God

Good Fortune God of Wealth Counseling

He sits on a ball of rice beating his sack with a hammer. The sack then becomes full of goodies. (This never happens when we hit the sack.)

DAIKOKU is a great alternative to Santa Claus — no messing with chimneys and not a reindeer in sight. He’s also a team member of the Seven God Luck Gods. See SHICHI-FUKU-JIN.
