Daruma Doll Fair


Mar 03 2020 - Mar 04 2020



Daruma Doll Fair

Spring festival held at a temple in the west of Tokyo, where traditional ‘wish’ dolls can be bought for luck in various areas of life. A monk will draw a Sanskrit character in the left eye of the doll symbolizing the wish. If the wish has come true, the other eye will be filled in a year later. Every hour there is a prayer ceremony, and dolls from the previous year are returned to the temple and burned.

We regret that all of our tours are currently suspended for July 2020. See you soon!

Got it!
