Collecting stamps at "visit to seven gods" = 1000 yen ($9.62 €7.04)

I made a pilgrimage to visit "Tokai shichifukujin seven deities of good fortune" with my local community members. Tokai shichifukujin are stamp places for pilgrims to visit seven deities of good fortune, which consist of seven temples and shrines in Shinagawa area. 

I bought a mat board at the first spot shrine, then collected stamps at each shrine/temple. It took 3 hours to visit all 7 places. The mat board cost 1000 yen ($9.62 €7.04).

Here is the map of Tokai shichifukujin seven deities of good fortune.
