[Ebisu] Ebisu Statue



 I’ve always been to Ebisu for work, but this was the first time I stopped in front of the statue of Ebisu in front of the station. Around the statue, you can see people waiting for each other.

 Isn’t this face an expression that you don’t know if you’re smiling at? The strength of his right hand and the gritted teeth on his face look like an otchan cheering for sumo wrestling or baseball from the stands.

 Oops, Otchan is a disrespectful million, so I apologize and correct here. This person is also known as the god of fortune and the god of commerce, which is familiar among the seven gods of fortune. Prosperous business!

 He had a large sea bream on his left side, and he was a god of good fortune who really looked good with beer.

Ebisu (えびす, 恵比須, 恵比寿, 夷, 戎), also transliterated Webisu (ゑびす, see historical kana orthography) or called Hiruko (蛭子) or Kotoshiro-nushi-no-kami (事代主神), is the Japanese god of fishermen and luck. He is one of the Seven Gods of Fortune (七福神, Shichifukujin), and the only one of the seven to originate purely from Japan without any Buddhist or Taoist influence.
