and is regarded as a talisman of good luck in Japan, hence very popular. There will be some 300 Daruma doll shops at the festival in Jindaiji Temple and lots of people will come after the dolls making the temple so busy and crowded.

Highly recommended. Not only the temple but also soba restaurants there are very good. You can observe how they make soba.
