Takasaki Daruma, the largest producer in Japan
The Takasaki Daruma is a lucky charm made to pray for the safety of sericulture farmers in their homes.
Gunma Prefecture has long been a region where sericulture has flourished.
Silkworms molt four times before making cocoons, and when they break open their old shells and emerge, it is called "getting up.
With these words in mind, sericultural farmers have continued to worship the Daruma doll as an important guardian deity.
