Introduction

Traditionally the Japanese have worshiped at least eight hundred myriads of gods, which must have caused a few congestion problems on their relatively small islands.

Their major belief systems are Buddhism, Shinto, Yamaha and Objectism. But amidst dragons and demons they have some very endearing Gods of Good Fortune.
