Daruma are found all over Japan. Based on Bodhidharma of Zen Buddism, they are usually round & red with two white circles for eyes. One is supposed to set a goal or make a wish and color in one of these with a black circle. Only when the goal or wish is realized can the other eye be colored in, representing an enlightenment. Our whimsical Daruma Mug includes a lid to keep your drink warm. Microwave/dishwasher safe. Made in Japan.
