Japanese lucky goods. Festival of "Dharma"

Posted on February 21, 2019

“Dharma” is traditionally familiar to Japanese people as a lucky which fulfills wishes.
In Japan, many companies and shops have “Dharma” as an amulet.

If purchasing “Dharma” as a souvenir, please place it at your house and office with your wishes.

In that case, you will write an eyeball of the Dharma with your wish.  
Then keep the number of eyeball one until your dreams come true.
Once accomplishing the goal, you would fill in the another eyeballl.
