Their food is tasty and healthy. Oh, the salad is to die for. I love the dressing of it. The pasta is just so-so. The pizza was delicious as well. I will definitely go back here because of the Salad.

Kids here will also enjoy, there is a place to play while waiting for the turn to seat and also after lunch time to play for kids. Interesting concepts.

What’s good about this place was they sell garden materials, tools, plants, herbs and flowers. They’re so beautiful, especially those flowers, colorful and vibrant. I want them all but we don’t have the garden yet.

My own verdict: The price is expensive, but I think is worth it because it’s their own grown vegetables and healthy. (4 star) Recommended to try. Here’s there website: The Farmer

Once again, we visit this temple of course with different people, I mean visitor. The temple was done renovating. This is the new place they built.

Look at my little princess staring those Daruma Dolls. Those dolls are scattered in this temple.

The Daruma doll (達磨daruma), also known as a Dharma doll, is a hollow, round, Japanese traditional doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism. These dolls, though typically red and depicting a bearded man (Dharma), vary greatly in color and design depending on region and artist. Though considered an omocha, meaning toy, by some, Daruma has a design that is rich in symbolism and is regarded more as a talisman of good luck to the Japanese. Daruma dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making them a popular gift of encouragement. The doll has also been commercialized by many Buddhist temples to use alongside goal setting.

When purchased, the eyes are white so a person can decide on a goal or wish and paint one eye in. Once the goal is achieved, the second eye is filled in.

History and commercialization

The current popular symbolism associated with Daruma as a good luck charm in part originated with the Daruma-dera (Temple of Daruma) in the city of Takasaki (Gunma Prefecture, north of Tokyo). Josef Kyburz, author of “Omocha”: Things to Play (Or Not to Play) with, explained that the founder of Daruma-Dera would draw New Year’s charms depicting Bodhidharma. The parishioners would keep these charms to “bring happiness and prosperity and ward off accidents and misfortune”.

It is believed that the Daruma figurine then originated from this region when the ninth priest, Togaku, found a solution to handle the constant requests of the parishioners for new charms. The charms were always given with an effectiveness of one year, so the people required new ones every year. He solved this by entrusting them with the making of their own Daruma charms near the beginning of the Meiwa period (1764–72). The temple made wooden block molds for the people to use. The peasants then used these molds to make three-dimensional papier-mâché charms.

Kyburz notes that though it is unknown when the Daruma figurine combined with the tumbler doll; the two were well recognized as synonymous by the mid-19th century. The doll quickly grew in popularity, becoming a mascot of the region. This was due greatly in part to fact that the majority of the families were silk farmers, a crop which requires a great deal of luck for success.

There is an annual Daruma Doll Festival (達磨市daruma-ichi) held by the city of Takasaki in celebration of being the proclaimed birthplace of the Daruma doll. The celebration is held at the Shorinzan, the name of Takasaki’s “Daruma-Dera”. According to the Takasaki city website, “Over 400,000 people from all over the Kanto Plain come to buy new good-luck dolls for the year. Takasaki produces 80% of Japan’s Daruma dolls.” The festival also features a 24-hour reading of sutras by the Shorinzan monks for world peace.

Trade In Car

After we attended a showroom for the new release car of Nissan with Autech which is top notch techonology. Well, as you all know Japan is a manufacture of cars. Thats why here in Japan after 3years you can change your car and trade in to a latest model. But, you can exceed to 5 years it depends on the condition of the car. In Japan, the more the older your car is, the insurance is much expensive. So, people here cars is not luxury to them is a necessity.
