About this photo

Shot in the city of Nishiarai, Tokyo. The dolls without the eyeballs were sold in a shop near a Buddhist temple. Many dolls were displayed in the storefront. The doll is a Japanese traditional doll and called Daruma dolls. It is usually used to offer a fervent prayer. And when the wish puts over, its eyes are written in. So these dolls doesn't have the apple of their eyes yet. Although I know the reason, their appearance looked a little scary.
