Schojoo is a river kami who likes to drink sake and who is cheered by those people who also love sake. And when the sake goes bad it’s said that the goodness went to Schojoo. He does make close friends with people who are good disposition.
One night he appeared to a young sailor named Koofu who cared very deeply for his father. Seeign that Schojoo’s sake jug was empty Koofu filled with without asking and acting as a mindful host. The next morning Koofu found to his surprise that his jug contained the best Sake he’d ever tasted and even better he found that the jug was never empty but always refilled itself when ever he had a drink. This was the gift of Schojoo given because the man was not greedy.
