SANBO-KOJIN

Japanese Hearth God

Also known as Kamado-Gami, Kamado-No-Kami

Kitchen Stove God

Known as the Three-sided Rough God, he has three faces and two pairs of hands. Just what is needed in a busy kitchen.

A domestic deity of stoves and house-warming, he is very popular despite having a rather short temper.

He is sometimes known as Kojin — a name we have reserved for his female version.
