Bimbo-Gami

Japanese - A god of poverty. It is said that he can be banished from a house if the fire is blown on through a bamboo tube which, when it cracks from the heat, is thrown away. His presence is announced by the clicking of death-watch beetles which act as his servants. Occasionally called Bimbo-Gami, Bimbogami or Bimbogami.
