The Japanese name for the famous Seven Lucky Gods is Shichifukujin. They are usually Daikoku, Bishamon, Ebisu, Jurōjin, Fukurokuju, Benten (Benzaiten), and Hotei. Some lists substitute Kisshōten for Jurōjin or Fukurokuju. Usually this pilgrimage, meguri, is done in the first few days of the year, some shrines and temple only participate then, some do so year round. If the pilgrim wants to they can collect a stamped seal or small statue at each shrine or temple. What is provided varies with different pilgrimages.
