Joppari reminds us of a red daruma

Joppari logo mark

A red daruma reminds us of Joppari and Joppari reminds us a red daruma. These two have strong relations.

The motif of the red daruma is a picture drawn on the boby of popular Nuruyu Kokeshi doll in Kuroishi city.
The daruma is symbolic of good luck as well persistence and inspired our sales management to sell Joppari nationwide.

Now Joppari bottle with the red daruma label is Rokkashuzo’s trade mark of.
