Daruma-ji Temple

Prefecture map 9 Shorinzan Darumaji Temple is famous for being the birthplace of Daruma dolls, which are a lucky charm. The Daruma Hall, which has displays of different kinds of Daruma dolls from various places and eras, and the small summer house (Senshintei), which was home to the world famous German architect Bruno Taut during the early years of the Showa Era, can be found in the temple grounds. This is the only place in Japan where you can enjoy views of the red and gold foliage leaves matching up perfectly with the red Daruma dolls during the fall season.
