Kanemochi ... The Rich Daruma
金持ちだるま


This is a pun about the word mochi, rice cake and holding something, motsu.

Here we have Daruma in the form of a rice cake decoration, holding a piece of money, thus implying he is rich.

Daruma for luck with money

You only have to put this golden Daruma in the entrance hall and strike him carefully when you leave the home ... then he will help you to get rich and avoid all misfortune.




Gold is seen as round, so this Daruma is almost round.
