    Visited Takasaki daruma and says so. From Takasaki station arrived in about 15 minutes by car. Through the main gate, the count would be 100, to climb up the stairs with a catapult and the Auditorium. From there further on the stairs to the spirit Temple main hall, Dharma Hall and Temple and prayed. To nokyo-sho to catapult the Senkaku. So I think I got the nokyo-sho at the temple that "like nokyo-sho. "And the MPB said at the reception," or dedication book the shogunate as a sign the dedication the sutras, sutras have? "" I'm sorry I didn't know that. Sutra is not. "[Writing Mashu Mo-Ho landison dense-Sutra and the cross instead of the sutras, please dedicate. "Pictures to write and dedicate the nokyo-sho.

    A short walk from Yawata station Gunma. Is no map location from the train station, there's no guesswork. No one has visited or not because of the rain. Seems the takasaki daruma variety, is felt. The bells of happiness that can ring a Bell after nine teraflops,

    There is a lot of stairs, but on the way to Zhongshan hide-CHAN's name, where you can enjoy. Also, it was interesting and Dharma in the world at the top.

    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.
