Description

This Daruma Otoshi game is from Miyagi Prefecture in Japan. The game consists of a Daruma doll made of five cylindrical doughnut-shaped blocks, each a different color (red, yellow, green, purple, and unpainted) that make up the body and a painted headpiece on top. The blocks are held together by a wooden mallet inserted through the holes. The aim of the game, using the mallet, is to knock out the colored parts of his body while his head remains upright.
