Blind Daruma

Are you ready to set a New Year's goal? These little red, round guys called daruma might be able to help meet your goals.  Japanese fill in one eye when they set their goal and fill in the other when the goal has been completed.  At the end of the year many of these are burnt at the temple, when the goals have been met and new ones are to be set.

Get your at the New Year's market at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan.  Set your goal, draw in one eye and get motivated as this little guy stares at you through the year.  Happy New Year!
