  • Not-getting breasts of Dharma first amazed. And type, so there is the dedication of the person. It is fun to look.

  • It is a bit out of the way about a 30 minute walk from the train station, but definitely worth it. So many Daruma!! I loved this shrine, it was a perfect place to get a gift.  more »
  • Many piled around the main hall over role of Dharma. Or one eye, both eyes, wish come true, they could not, from a name written on the Dharma, I imagine many. Online Dharma, and reciting with make a wish, seems to get enlightened. Temple in the Dharma and the origin of the Japan article, will be studied. To the elderly people who together went to the parking lot at the top would be nice. Stairs is quite tiring. We have connijakpark the way back to shelter. Fall season is you want to come back again.

  • This place is famous for "Dharma" a Japanese tumbling doll. Take about 15min from Takasaki station by car. Temple itself is built on higher ground with steps. But for wheelchair, you can visit by car on the highest level directly.
  • i visited daruma-ji on 6th of january. it was full of festive people getting their new daruma as a protection for the new year and giving back the old ones. it was a very nice experience: i got a new daruma. there's a special prayer the monks do to draw one eye of the daruma, for a little offer. it was fascinating. it surely worths one day trip from tokyo.
  • This is the place where all the 'Darumas' are returned to the Gods. Once the wish fulfilling Darumas have done their job and both eyes had been dotted, they are returned here and would be consecrated (burned) and returned to the Gods with gratitude.
  • This is a relatively small temple complex but has a beautiful collection of daruma dolls and it's worth visiting just to see them. It's in a lovely area just outside Takasaki as well and makes a nice trip.
  • Nice and Calm Daruma Temple with rich history.
