There are many types of Myoken statue in Japan. Including Boy type, Sonjouou type, Nose type, Zhenwu type and so on. Among them, the Zhenwu type was influenced by the god Xuantian Shangdi. The God Myoken was influenced by the God Xuantian Shangdi, probably during the Kamakura period. I investigated the Myoken statues in a place and found that Yasushiro, Hoshida, Souma, Chichibu, Chiba and other Myoken belong to Zhenwu type Myoken.
