Being one of the seven gods of good fortune, he is the Japanese god of fishermen and luck. Hiroshima has a big festival in his honor every year in November. He seems to have evolved into the god of merchants.

This night the kids crowded around the stage and he gave them candy. This little guy was a straggler who got up there late. Note the lady flute player.

The situation is certainly exciting for a child. It's great that we can now see a variety of cultures.
