Only Benzaiten is woman in seven gods.

I started to visiting Narashino Shichifukujin from the temple named Yakushiji.

Visiting Narashino Shichifukujin 2012
Visiting Shichifukujin is interesting ! I visited Narashino Shichifukujin(Seven Lucky Gods) 1st January. Visiting Shichifukujin is called "Shichifukujin-meguri" in Japanese. I have known Shichifuku...
This temple is the closest from my house.

It is situated amid a shopping street near the Keisei Okubo Station.

今年は初めて七福神めぐりをしてみました。近所を中心にめぐる、習志野七福神めぐり。まずは一番近い、薬師寺へ。

As soon as I entered the gate, Rokujizo (Six Jizo) welcomed me.

I seeked Benzaiten… I couldn’t find…

There was a red flag that is written “Benzaiten”, so I looked around, but there was any.

Saying “no”. This is Kosodate Jizo (child-raising Jizo) .

幸せそうです。でもなんか寂しそう。

Oh?

・・・ん?中になんかいる。しかしこの距離では私の目では判別できない!

There is something.  Because it was dark in it ,I couldn’t see with  the naked eye.
But I could through a camera. I tried to more close.
