Daruma was first published in 1993, as an easy-to-use and to-visually-appreciate the various forms which Japanese people have used over the centuries to express what was of value and appreciated by men and women who grew up in these islands and this climate.
Though Japanese refer to their homeland as small, it is much bigger in area and in geography than many other countries and is densely populated. It has an old and largely unknown history but is clearly an amalgamation of northern and southern peoples who used to be able to walk from the north across what is now sea and perhaps had extensive ties with the Pacific's many islands and civilizations.
What matters for you is that Daruma's issues have made available in an attractive fashion many of the tactile expressions of what was appealing to the people of Japan and those who came to know them in person, or through reading and museum-visiting or shopping in recent years.
There are now many ordinary and highly educated people who use not only Japanese products but also derive great pleasure from knowing about and being shown the objects with which Japanese surround themselves today or in past centuries.
Having copies of Daruma is one way to educate yourself and surround you with the things which Japanese have created and explained over the centuries in books, exhibitions and now on the internet, so we are all richer than princes decades ago!
