Best to visit in January! "Miyako Shichifukujin Meguri"

I encountered Shichifukujin at "Ebisu-bune Junko" of "Gion no Ebesan" which I introduced the other day.

Even in "Miyako Shichifukujin Meguri" you can see the Seven Gods of Good Fortune!

"Miyako Shichifukujin Meguri" literally means visiting 7 shrines and temples where "Miyako Shichifukujin" is enshrined.

It is said that if you visit in the first month of the new year, the merit is especially great.

In Kyoto, where the faith of Shichifukujin (Seven Deities of Good Fortune) is said to have started during the Muromachi period, Shichifukujin are familiar to us.

Why don't you visit 7 shrines and temples in the city to receive good fortune?

You can see "Ebisu no Kami" in "Miyako Shichifukujin" in "Kyoto Ebisu jinja Shrine"!
