Money Talks

Meet Black Daikoku, God of Wealth, Farmers, and Worldly Success.

Coins fall out when he shakes his magic mallet. In his other hand, he carries a sack of treasure. He's depicted standing on two bales of rice, representing wealth.

I was quite impressed when I saw him at the Kiyomizu temple, Kyoto.

Of course, I really wanted him to like me (ie. grant me lots of sweet moolah). So I approached him with confidence and pleaded my cause.

Did it work? I don't know. Talk to my team of offshore accountants. Ha. Cha Ching!

Pass some of your wealth on to me when it shows up!
