Scenery Of Each Season And Cute Daruma At A Temple Of Luck With Victory

It is believed as a temple of luck with victory. In the precinct, there are many daruma dolls which have a spirit of 'nana korobi ya oki' (though fall seven times, get up eight times). 

Mountain Temple With Beautiful Fall Foliage Like A Paradise In Autumn

Daruma Dolls Here And There. A Shrine With Many Pretty Daruma

A shrine has victory luck. Walking around the precincts, I can find many daruma dolls on the stones and trees. They're so pretty. These small daruma had omikuji (a lot) in them, and visitors left them all over the shrine.
