Daruma is a lucky charm doll who watches over the wishes of Japanese people. A figure of Buddhism in the archipelago, Daruma is none other than the transfiguration of Bodhidharma, which instilled Zen worship on the island.
Once a year, a ritual is dedicated to him during the “Matsuri” of Jindai-ji. The Japanese make their wishes for health, happiness, success and fortune.
