Abutto in Japanese mythology, is the god of health. The sick implore his help. He is ranked in the second class of great gods. He is very mighty and is often prayed to for fair winds by sailors. They thrown a few pieces of silver into the water which they wish to navigate, after having fastened the silver to a piece of wood in order to keep it afloat, as a present to this god; — They believe that the money comes directly into the hands of the god whom they worship.
