Ebisu by danctheduck Ebisu by danctheduck
There are seven lucky gods that are celebrated in Japan. One of them is Ebisu, god of prosperity and fishermen. He traditionally holds a Tai, or red sea bream (pagrus major), an auspicious fish that is often used as a symbol of good luck. Just looking at this picture means that glorious things are about to happen in your life.

I also happen to be a fan because there is a delightful Japanese brew called 'Yebisu' that is also named after the cheerful fellow.

Very nice picture of Ebisu!
It brings back memories from when I walked past his statue in, I believe it was Shibuya last Summer. :)

Let's have a box of Yebisu for good luck :D

I love the fishes expression. It has such an overall cheerful aspect to it; the contrasting colours really make it stand out. Chou kawaii.
