Seven Lucky Gods "七福神"

Spirituality in Japan is very unique in its wide acceptance and mixing of Shinto and Buddhist beliefs, traditions, and customs. However, there are also some traditions and gods that sit in a separate category — sometimes included in Buddhist beliefs, sometimes considered more a part of folklore. These include the Shichifukujin, or Seven Lucky Gods. Often seen as a collective, these seven individual gods have quite distinct features and personalities and very different origins.
