Bishamon (BishamonTen) is claimed to be the Japanese god of struggle and, in some accounts, of wealth or riches. Like an incredible feudal warlord, Bishamon distributes wealth and protects all who observe the legislation.
Each of the 4 compass factors is claimed to have its personal guardian. In Japanese Buddhist mythology, Bishamon guards the North. He protects in opposition to illness in addition to demons.
Bishamon wears armor and holds a spear in his hand. Often he's proven standing on slain demons with a hoop or wheel of hearth round his head like a halo.
Bishamon can also be known as Tamon or Tamon-ten.
