■ Introducing the Seven Pillar Goddesses
Seven senior goddesses known as the “Seven Pillar Goddesses” watch over the human world. In order to raise Tsukumo to become a full-fledged goddess, you’ll have to meet the Seven Pillar Goddesses all over Japan.
Ame no Uzume (voiced by Mikoi Sasaki)

She serves as the leader of the Seven Pillar Goddesses. Her only flaw is that she dances too much.
Sotorihime (voiced by Sae Ootsuka)
The rock singer goddess who possesses the divine power of “song.” She is a young guitarist who feels the image of a traditional goddess is boring and is working hard to incorporate new ideas. She’s also taking on a rock arrangement of a “satirical haiku,” but it’s not really coming together, so she’s having a hard time. The truth is, she also has a weakness for cute things.
Kukurihime (voiced by Ayaka Imamura)
The trimmer goddess who possesses the divine power of “binding.” She is an extremely forgetful person who cannot even remember a single name. Her daily routine consists of grooming the guardian dogs “Aa” and “Uu,” who accompany her. Sometimes she is half asleep and grooms them an unnecessary amount. Apparently, when people point out to her that she forgets things, she hides the fact that she feels hurt.
Konohana Sakuyahime (voiced by Aina Suzuki)
The idol goddess who possesses the divine power of the “flower.” She advocates for breaking away from the traditional goddesss style. She comes off as both cheerful and sweet, but it’s all just an act to acquire “followers.” She has an intense two-sided personality and doesn’t do anything unless she’s interested in it. When her fans don’t increase, she worries in that back of her mind that she might not get to keep being a goddess. She always carries around a stuffed bear named Kumarin.
Toyota Mahime (voiced by Reina Ueda)
The cook goddess who possesses the divine power of “cooking.” She prepares sea foods and mountain vegetables in luxurious ways, and brings blessings to people’s lives. She possesses strong supernatural powers, but on the other hand is vulnerable to the pressure of extreme stage fright, and is still treated as a developing goddess due to her emotional immaturity. Because she often uses strange words, she is unable to communicate well with others, and been more closed off recently.
Ishikoridome (voiced by Asuka Ogame)
The shrine builder goddess who possesses the divine power of “manufacturing.” A true born Edo girl who is more fond of festivals than eating properly. While she has an wild and aggressive personality, she has the power to see through to the essence of things, and is loved as a dependable older sister among the Seven Pillar Goddesses. She has the traits of a leader and specializes in working as a team. She is the “manufacturing” goddess, but she is better at “breaking.” Relatively often, she is unable to keep herself under control.
Ame no Sagume (voiced by Haruka Chisuga)
The fortune teller goddess who possesses the divine power of “fortune-telling.” Among the Seven Pillar Goddesses, she possesses an exceptionally strong supernatural power. Although she has unmatched accuracy in fortune telling and many followers, she is a realist who believes “fortune telling is not the answer for everything.” She has an innocent, yet contrarian personality and is manipulating those around her. Recently, her hobby has been messing around with Amaterasu.
■ Communicate with Tsukumo to Raise Her Stats
In order for Tsukumo to become a full-fledged goddess, she must pass “Divinity Exams” issued by the Seven Pillar Goddesses. To pass these exams, she’ll need to seek out the five abilities of “will-power,” “strength,” “wisdom,” “kindness,” and “beauty.” By teaching Tsukumo words and playing mini-games, each stat will increase.
Increase Your Stats by Changing God Clothing
The God Clothing Tsukumo wears not only changes her appearance and how she talks, it also raises the five parameters of “will-power,” “strength,” “wisdom,” “kindness,” and “beauty.” Additionally, it seems there are also hidden special effect triggered through various means.
■ Collect Offerings and Take on the “Divine Test”
The Divinity Exams ascertains a goddess’ talent, her “divine power,” and increases her strength. There are five entries to this exam—“will-power,” “strength,” “wisdom,” “kindness,” and “beauty”—and meeting the standards to pass each will increase Tsukumo’s divine power by one.
“Offerings” are symbols that you must obtain in order to meet with the Seven Pillar Goddesses. They can be found at station squares.

If you receive higher than a certain grade, you’ll be able to obtain a God Outfit from one of the Seven Pillar Goddesses.
