These are the seven deities of luck present in Japanese mythology and folklore, they are a group of deities venerated to receive help in daily life and to obtain worldly benefits. Ebisu, the only deity of the group of native origins, is the god of abundance and daily food. Initially born in the fishing community and linked to the fishing activity, the cult would later extend to trade more generally, perhaps through the role played by wandering puppeteers, known as ebisu-kaki or ebisu-mawashi. Patron saint of traders, fishermen and farmers, he is venerated by merchants because he is part of the protective deities of trade-related activities and symbolizes the honesty and ethics that people must have when dealing with business.
