Japanese Star Gods

The twenty-eight constellations

One of our package deals. This is the full set of 28 constellations in Japanese mythology. Based on an older Chinese astrological system, each one is represented by a deity. These are the 28 Followers of Kannon.

The Nijuhachi-Bushu is full of esoteric meanings which could change your life. We would love to give all the names and meanings.

Unfortunately we are still stuck on the Hairy Stomach of the Pink Dragon of the West in the Fourteenth Summer Segment. This is not proving very auspicious.
