One of the biggest Daruma Doll Markets in Japan, over 300 stalls selling the round dolls gather around the grounds of Jindaiji Temple. Daruma are sold with blank eyes which owners paint in once their wish for the New Year has been fulfilled. Unique to the Jindai-ji Daruma Market, visitors can bring their old dolls and have the character 阿 painted on their right eye (which has the meaning of closing events) and in the left eye of the new doll have the character 梵 painted to signify new beginnings (梵 is the character used for Sanskrit).
