  • Took the train from Takasaki to Gummayamata station on the Yokokowa line (2stops). It was a 20 minute straightforward walk to the temple area. It was a wet cold and drizzly day which I think helped wi...  more »
  • From Takasaki railway station is about 30 minutes by bus. Gate, old main building as well as the atmosphere has been small, Oh that will be over. And I feel if you drop in a passing car at Nice, but going all the way. Come to Dharma!

  • 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.
