宮内のだるま. Nanyoo Town 南陽市, Yamagata
Nanyo is located close to the regional shrine of the Kumano worship, Kumano jinja 熊野神社. This Daruma is sold as a souvenir after visiting the shrine.
The craftsmen who make it are located in Ikeguro village 池黒地区.
They also make Ebisu, Daikoku, the seven gods of good luck in a boat and others.
In recent years, this production has stopped when the last craftsman died.
At the back of the Daruma there are the words

Luck comes to someone who smiles.

笑う門には福きたる
