Since the 17th century, Daikoku has been most widely known as the Japanese ' god of WEALTH' and farmers, although in earlier centuries he was considered a fierce protector deity In Japan, artwork of this deity usually shows him wearing a hood and standing on bales of rice (tawara), carrying a large sack of treasure slung over his shoulder and holding a small magic mallet , the deity is invariably shown standing on two bales of rice holding his magic mallet and treasure sack In some traditions, Daikoku is also considered a deity of the kitchen and a provider of food, and images of him can still be found in monastery kitchens and in the kitchens of private homes DAIKOKU -the Watchman of Prosperity..the Prince of Plenty
