Shorinzan daruma temple – Takasaki

Takasaki is famous for the Daruma Doll which is traditionally bought at the beginning of the year with the eyes blank. A wish is made and the left eye is painted in. If the wish comes true the other eye is painted in and at the end of the year the Daruma is returned to the temple.shorinzan daruma DSC01749 DSC_7949 DSC_7951
