Good Luck Japanese Mythology

The treasure ship that, in Japanese mythology, belongs to the seven gods of fortune bears a cargo of lucky items. Below the ship appear a lobster and the outline of a wish-granting mallet, both traditional symbols of prosperity. The calligraphy above the ship and Mt. Fuji looming in the background refer to the tradtional belief that dreaming of Mt. Fuji on the first night of the new year is fortuitous.
