Daruma – Japanese Character Sketches

Hello! I’m a Daruma. I bring good luck.

Notice how my eyebrows look like the wings of a crane and my facial hair looks like the shell of a tortoise? These details are my way of wishing you a long happy life.

Sometimes you’ll see me with no eyes… That means I’m a Daruma Wishing Doll. You make a wish, and fill out the first eye. Once you’ve put in the hard work to achieve your dreams – and your wish has been fulfilled, you can fill in the second eye to let the world know your wish has come true.
