(Deity)KOJIN

In a nutshell ...
God of : The Kitchen
Religion : Shinto
Attributes : coming soon ...

Japanese God of the Kitchen.

Kojin lives in an Enoki tree. I have it on good authority that Enoki is a Japanese mushroom, kind of fine and stringy and grow in groups about the size of a clump of grass. This would make Kojin the smallest God ever, unless there are two kinds of Enoki. Hey, anything is possible in the world of mythology.

In Japan, any old dolls should not be thrown into the rubbish bin but laid at the roots of said tree. This makes Kojin happy, and you can never have too many happy kitchen Gods.
