  • From Gunma Ishikawajima-Harima station 25 minutes on foot. Immediately turn left, across the nose Takahashi. On the right side in vermilion gate and go for a while. Takasaki Tourism Association written and a 15-minute walk, but he will not run as long as 15 minutes, get. The Temple of the Obaku 18th-century creation. Main object of worship is juichimen Kannon. In the Dharma Hall next to it, and stacked in the spirit Temple which enshrines the daruma Daishi daruma displayed various Dharma Japan nationwide. "Ring of happiness", located in between the Auditorium and the Catapult can struck anyone.

  • Guided parking, close to the main hall and Park at the parking lot below will have to enter from the main gate, closes at 4. The 上らねば quite a number of stone steps and enter from the main gate in the parking lot near the main hall by the weakness of the legs, right. With staff, good view from the temple forecourt. Because the short history as a Zen Buddhism in Japan, and Obaku denomination in this temple are rarely seen.

  • Be sure to check out their Daruma museum!
  • 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 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.
  • 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.
