When I was visiting this zen temple was booming with the sound of cicadas and glistening wet with the rain drops from the passing typhoon. The buildings are nice (they include a small cottage where a German resident scholar resided for many years), a small Daruma doll museum with different statuette styles from every province and very nice gardens. Also,... More

Daruma-ji it's a small and quiet place with shrine celebrating the Daruma dolls. A nice stop before reaching Gunma Onsen.

I guess it is reachable only when you drive to this place, the building and the tempo are very traditional. You have a chance to hit on the huge bell and make wishes.They also has lots of collection of different Darumaji. It is a good place to visit and to take photo.

A great place to go conveniently by bus and with very low cost travelling only 200 Yen per way from Takasaki Station at bust stop # 4. Breathtaking scenery, have to walk up abit to the hill, you will find the traditional temple in Japanese way. The Daruma doll (達磨 daruma?), also known as a Dharma doll, is a hollow,... More
