"Fall down seven times, stand up eight" 七転び八起き
…the phrase that represents the Daruma
The history of Daruma dolls has lasted over 4 centuries in Japan. Based on a monk by the name of Bodhidharma and his famous willpower to never give up, it inspired local farmers to create dolls in his likeness for good harvest prayers every year. The meaning of Daruma eventually came to mean good luck and endurance to all Japanese people.
