An older respected cheerful person plays the part of Fukunokami (God of happiness).
Fukunokami is a jovial and cheerful god, and often expressed by wearing a mask of full smile.
The green creature is Oni .

60-year old people wear a red jacket and 70-year
purple. This is a traditional way to cerebrate one's
longevity. In olden times, Japanese people lived to an
average of 50 years. But now the average life spans
of Japanese people are the longest in the world.
