TOKA EBISU FESTIVAL

The festival

is held in Nishinomiya shrine on the 10th of January.  It is called "TOKA EBISU Festival."

EBISU

is a Japanese God, one of the seven fortune deities.  He is considered to be a god of fishery.  A big tuna is dedicated to the shrine.

Ebessan

is a nickname of Ebisu.  He is also considerd to be a god of business prosperity.
Therefore people buy Ebisu doll to pray for the prosperity.  

Of course I bought a big bamboo decoration to pray for the exterminatin of corona virus and coming back to normal life.  

Thank you.
