Japanese Protection God

God of Fire, Wisdom and Protection from Disaster

He lives on top of a mountain surrounded by fire. You can go to consult him on tricky issues and obtain fire insurance. But be very very careful because anyone who looks upon him is instantly struck blind. Probably best to send a postcard instead.

FUDO is known as ‘’The Immovable’’ and, being Japanese, one imagines him resembling a Sumo wrestler.
