Koshu daruma dolls date back 400 years ago, and are said to have been first modeled after Takeda Shingen. Unlike most daruma dolls, this one is white and depict "child" daruma, with the parent's eyes painted such that they meet a worshiper's eyes when placed in a home shrine. The child's eyes, however, are centered, perhaps on a hopeful dream. Few daruma dolls in Japan are created with this kind of intention.
And the side is decorated with the auspicious pattern of "Pine, Bamboo and Plum" (shoo chiku bai).
