Daikoku at Kiyomizudera (清水寺) in Kyoto

Daikokuten is one of the Seven Lucky Gods. Frequently seen with Ebisu, at Kiyomizu he is solo. Daikokuten is best known as the god of wealth. The mallet in his hand is supposed to magically conjure up money. The rice bags he stands on symbolize wealth. He also has a bag of rice slung over his shoulder.
