Hariko Introduction

Papermachee Dolls 張子 hariko

Hariko Papermache Dolls are probably the most common of all the Daruma dolls.
Here is a quote from an article about the development of Daruma dolls in Japan:


From the Tumbler Doll (okiagari koboshi) to the
Tumbler Daruma (okiagari Daruma 起き上がりだるま)

After the Period of the Warring States Japan reached a time of 300 years of peace under the Tokugawa regime. The Tumbler Dolls of papermachee first made in Kyoto, soon
reached the new capital of Edo. The inventive townspeople of Edo painted a big black beard on the face of the old man and a visiting priest came to say: "Well, if this is not the face of Daruma Daishi himself!" The red robe was the traditional garb of a priest.

Getting up after falling down was taken as a wish getting better for an ill person. It was also said that the stark red colour would ward off smallpox, so the red tumbler doll of Daruma would be the best present for a sick child. This one blessing was soon followed by others and developed into "Falling down seven times, getting up eight times"
(nanakorobi yaoki 七転びやおき), turning into a blessing for many generations of the family line, good business and others.

Thus Daruma got a firm place in the heart of the Japanese people and seemd to work for the good of people with six heads and six arms. The faith in him grew steadily and soon the dolls were sold at the New Years fairs at many local temples and the tradition to paint one eye for a wish started. You had to buy a new one every year, so the tradition expanded and we have to thank the founder of the Zen Sect for all of this.

An executive toy is a novelty item that is usually a small mechanical gadget placed on the desk of a corporate executive or other office workers. They have no work-related function but are usually interesting to look at and entertaining.

Nanoblocks, a system of plastic building blocks similar to Lego but about half the linear dimensions. Most finished models are designed to be tiny, of a size suitable for an office desk decoration.

nerimono 練り物 "twisted" clay dolls
made with clay or raw natural glue and chips of paulownia, leftover from woodcarving of furniture and other dolls. This paste is pressed into molds and later colored.

Together with the nerimono from Iwatsuki in Saitama, they are the most popular "seasonal dolls" in Kanto.
The tradition goes back to the clay dolls of Fushimi, Kyoto, and have been handed down in the Sekiguchi family 関口家, in the store Yoshimiya 吉見屋, since about 1580.

The akamono are the most popular among the nerimono.

They come in traditional forms (above) and some more modern ones.

Tomioka Daruma 富岡だるま
A kind of Tomioka papermachee dolls 富岡張子.



They are made since about 130 years ago, when the first doll maker went to Miharu and started how to make them. He produced Daruma to improve his meager income from farming. Now the family tradition is in the fourth generation. Later after the war they started to make other kinds of papermachee dolls. A speciality is the use of the blue color. The face is a bit similar to the Miharu Daruma.
Now the widow of the last craftsmen keeps the tradition.

They come with the eyes painted in and stare at the enemy and bad luck until good fortune comes your way.
The brows are like cranes, the beard in the form of a tortoise. The face is framed with a green pattern that looks like a dragon. It is thus used to protect from fire.

During the Edo period travel along the river Abukumagawa 阿武隈川 was frequent and together with the tax rice Daruma dolls were shipped around.


quote
The Abukuma River (阿武隈川, Abukuma-gawa),
with a length of 234 km, is the second longest river in the Tōhoku region of Japan and the 6th longest river in Japan. It runs through Fukushima Prefecture and Miyagi Prefecture, rising from springs in the peaks of the Nasu mountains, collecting water from tributaries leaving the Ōu Mountains and the Abukuma Highlands (阿武隈高地, Abukuma-kōchi), then emptying into the Pacific Ocean as a major river.
The Abukuma River flows north through Fukushima Prefecture's Nakadōri region, past the cities of Shirakawa, Sukagawa, Kōriyama, Nihonmatsu and Fukushima. The portion of the river flowing between Nihonmatsu and Fukushima forms a deep ravine called Hōrai-kyō (蓬莱峡).

Sogi modoshi 宗祇戻しThe place where Sogi returned his steps

The famous poet Io Sogi (Soogi, Sougi 飯尾宗祇 いいおそうぎ) on his way to a poetry meeting for linked verse in Northern Japan met a poor girl here selling cotton. When he started talking to her, she answered him with a perfect waka verse. He felt quite ashamed at this and went back to Kyoto without attending the poetry meeting.

The waka

「阿武隈の川瀬にすめる鮎にこそ うるかといえる わたはありけれ」
Abukuma no kawase ni sumeru ayu ni koso

Nakaminato was swept away by the tsunami.

那珂湊 津波

The scenes of destruction were especially frightening because they were far from the worst-hit areas. Nakaminato is on the southern edge of the worst devastation from the 8.9-magnitude quake and the tsunami it spawned, which swept away whole villages farther north. Nakaminato sits about 155 miles south of Sendai, the city that bore much of the brunt of the tsunami.
Before the shaking and the waves hit, Nakaminato’s buildings had a worn-out look; the town had been left behind by the country’s industrial buildup and by the young people who headed for thriving cities. The mostly aging population made its living mainly from fishing; the heart of the community was a fishing co-op on the waterfront.
