Noragami Wiki

How to Worship a God (神様の祀り方, Kami-sama no Matsuri-kata) is the seventh episode of Noragami Aragoto. It first aired on November 13, 2015.


Yato, Yukine and Hiyori successfully return from Bishamon's mansion. At Tenjin's temple, Yato is reminded that he had made a promise to cut Hiyori's ties with himself.

Hiyori arrives right in time for her placement exam and transfers from Middle School to High School. Later on, while discussing club choices with her friends, it is revealed that Yato had ignored his promise and did not cut ties with Hiyori. He pesters her about joining a "Yato Club", while she decides to ignore him.

The Gods attend a colloquy, in which they focus on Bishamonten's corruption and fall out with the Yato God. Bishamon recognizes that is at fault, and that her actions were inappropriate but refuses to "bow down" to the other gods with guilt. The colloquy also discuses the threat of the Noh masks and the conjurer.

Ebisu, one of the Seven Gods of Fortune, visits Yato after the colloquy and negotiates to buy Yukine, who is now a valuable Blessed Vessel. Both Yato and Yukine seem tempted to contemplate the offer when Ebisu offers them large amounts of money. Yato is given an "advanced payment" which he promises Yukine will return to Ebisu. When they receive a call, they head out to find a man that conned an old lady for money. When they cannot eliminate the small phantom, Yukine uses the money Ebisu gave them in order to make the phantom grow and then eliminate it.

Yato proceeds to sulk and Yukine explains how Yato wanted to get a temple with the money they receive. Hiyori then builds a miniature temple model for Yato, which deeply moves him and even causes him to cry.
