I'm looking for the correct pronounciation of Jurojin. I've been told that Jurojin is one of the Seven Gods of Luck.

Any information is appreciated.

Dear Paladin,
Yes, your pronunciation is correct.
Jurojin or Juroujin (rojin = old man) is one of 7 fortune gods.
Sometimes he is confounded with Fukurokuju and in this case you add Kichijoten or Shojo to complet the list of 7 fortune gods.
Kind regards,
