I held event for visiting Shichifukujin(七福神) by bicycle with KIMONO.
Visiting Shichifukujin(七福神) in Sumida-river.
Sumida-district has Shichifukujin(七福神). They are the seven deities of good fortune in Japan. The deities is originally from Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and Shinto. Visiting the seven deities of good fortune is called Shichifukujin-Meguri(七福神めぐり). This culture grow in Japan. So it is not problem for Japanese to mixing the other religion deities. Some Japanese people even don’t know about which deities is from which religion. This culture is not only famous this area. You may have chance to visit them in other areas if you visit Japan.
