is the name of a Japanese god, who, as represented in their temples, presided over the waters and the fish. His votaries exhibited him with four arms, and the lower part of his body swallowed by a large sea-monster; his head crowned with flowers; holding in one hand a sceptre, in another a flower, a ring in the third, and having the fourth: closed, with the arm extended.' Over against him stood the figure of an humble penitent, one half of whose body was concealed within a shell. The temple was adorned with arrows and all sorts of warlike instruments.
