The Red Japanese Daruma Doll Lucky God, or Japanese Dharma doll, is a red hollow, round traditional Japanese doll made out of paper mache and modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism. Japanese Daruma dolls are rich in symbolism and seen as a symbol of perseverance making them a popular gift of encouragement, commonly used alongside goal setting! Daruma are associated with a beloved Japanese proverb, nana korobi yaoki, which means, fall down seven times, get up eight as the Daruma doll's rounded shape allows it to return to its original position even if knocked over, representing such persistence. Daruma reminds us all to never, ever give up on our goals in life!

When you receive your Red Japanese Daruma Doll Lucky God you can fill in one of the eyes, make a wish and once your wish has come true, fill in the other eye to thank the Daruma for granting your wish! It is recommended that you position your Daruma Doll somewhere visible in your home or at work so that while your Daruma focuses on your objective, you will be reminded to do the same! You may wish to consider a Medium Black Wooden Display Base (see image) to compliment your Daruma but please note that it is not included.

Size: 12cm / 5 inches high (Also available by special order in sizes ranging from 5.5cm to 75cm high)

Dear Hiromi...I write to say that I am very pleased with this most excellent gift, it is quite exquisite. May I also commend you on your very informative information leaflet on the origins of Daruma, the beautifully presented and wrapped packaging (so typically Japanese) and first class level of service that you so kindly provide.

Hi Hiromi, I just wanted to send a quick email to say how happy I am with the Red Daruma dolls I have ordered from your shop recently – they arrived so fast, beautifully wrapped and they look great! So thank you to your team for dealing with the order so efficiently and for the great products. Kind regards.


Hello Hiromi, I just wanted to send you a quick email to say how pleased I am with my Daruma. I loved the packaging and wrapping and it was delivered very quickly. I bought this as a present, as I had read it is a traditional gift of encouragement. It was very well received, and we are both very impressed with the quality of the doll. It's so much bigger than I expected! The Daruma is very beautiful, and we'll be painting in one eye and then the other when the goal is achieved. Many thanks again for your quick service and lovely Daruma.


As a top business transformation expert I have been using Daruma dolls for over 20 years as a fun yet effective way of bringing focus and energy to major change projects!


I've been wanting one of these Dharma dolls for a while but I could only find them in ceramic. I was given this as a birthday present and I was so happy that it was a traditional paper mache doll. I'm so happy with this product.
