There are around 70 master craftsmen making Daruma in Takasaki. The Daruma’s face is painted by hand by the craftsman at local ateliers using a brush, so each one is subtly different. If you look closely, you’ll notice the differences in the thickness of the eyebrows and beard or the color of the cheeks. Customers usually buy a Daruma every year from the atelier whose design favor the most.
