New special shape for Japan

From the most excellent Barts Special Shapes page

Wed 15 November 2006 - New Cameron for Japan
Again a new special shape manufactured at Cameron Balloons UK. This one is for Japan and made his first flight at the Saga Balloon Fiesta in Japan. The balloon's name is "Ebisu". Registration is JA-A1266.

Ebisu is the Japanese god of fishermen, good luck, and workingmen, as well as the guardian of the health of small children. He is one of the Seven Gods of Fortune, and the only one of the seven to originate from Japan. Ebisu is sometimes referred to as the brother of Hiruko, a Japanese sun god.
