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

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.

- quote
達磨 DARUMA
From ancient times, Japanese common people have delighted in the culture of engimono (good luck charms). Decorations, foods, talismans, festivals, and even performance artists at festivities can be engimono.

Traditional limbless dolls called Daruma are very popular Japanese engimono. Daruma imitates the zazen (seated) posture of Bodhidharma, the founder of a Zen Buddhist sect, who sacrificed his mobility over nearly a decade of meditation. A Japanese proverb Nana-korobi ya-oki can be literally translated “If you tumble down seven times, stand up eight times.” (Life is full of ups and downs.) Attributed to Bodhidharma, this proverb has come to symbolize the perseverance of Japanese people. Since Daruma dolls are designed to return to upright position if tipped over, they personify the spirit of Nana-korobi ya-oki.



The heart of this culture is in Takasaki-shi, Gumma Prefecture, where about 80% of Daruma dolls are produced. Hiroyuki Imai, a third-generation representative of Imai Daruma Shop founded 80 years ago says, “I’m hoping that people can accept hardship and sadness with gratitude by greeting Daruma (meaning Bodhidharma) every day. I want people to remember that every day is uniquely precious.”

Daruma-ichi (Daruma market) is held in Takasaki on January 6 and 7, drawing over 200,000 visitors each year. People visit this place and purchase Daruma to express gratitude for safety in the past year and hopes for good fortune in the coming year. Daruma dolls accept people’s wishes and watch over their daily lives with affection.

Plastic Daruma Dolls

DCTO Jibun Project

(Dreams Come True Object: My Project)
is a modern interpretation of an ancient Japanese Zen doll known as a Daruma doll. This curiously limbless, traditionally red-cloaked figure with unpainted eyes is used for personal dedication to a new venture such as starting a business, beginning a new path in life, or given as a gift for celebrations like New Years, weddings and birthdays. Painting in DCTO’s left eye shows commitment to a goal; once the goal is achieved, you then paint in DCTO’s right eye.

DCTO (‘dik-toe’) is designed to right itself when it is knocked over, reflecting the Japanese saying, ‘Nanakorobi yaoki’, ""Fall 7 times, rise 8 times”. This reminds us that no matter the number of times we may stumble, those with a persistent heart will rise again to achieve their goals, symbolizing relentless dedication and an undaunted spirit.

Dacosta Bayley: The Art of the Daruma
“People tell me that the eyes of my characters seem to draw them in,” artist Dacosta Bayley says. “The expressions on their faces communicate an honest and welcoming soul.”
“Ancient wisdom is finding relevance in contemporary times, and people are becoming more aware of themselves and of new possibilities for improving themselves,” Dacosta says. “It’s exciting for me to be a part of that as the DCTO: Jibun Project brings Zen to new eyes.”
