Een zeer populaire talisman voor goed geluk in het moderne Japan is het armloze, beenloze en ooglidloze poppetje, de Daruma-doll. Deze worden in tempels en op festivals verkocht. Ze zijn meestal gemaakt van papier-mashé, rood geverfd en stellen de mediterende Daruma voor. Wanneer men aan de zijkant van deze pop duwt, komt ze vanzelf weer terug recht. Daarom noemt met ze ook wel okiagari koboshi (tuimelpop).
