God of Wind at Nikko Taiyuin-byo 日光
Fujin, the god of wind, occupies a second niche on the back of Nitenmon, or Heaven's 2nd Gate, at Taiyuin, the mausoleum of Iemitsu Tokugawa, the 3rd Shogun. Fujin has 4 fingers, one for each compass direction, and 2 toes for heaven and earth. He's lost a bit of turquoise paint over the last few years. His bag of wind still retains its gilt designs.
