Princess Daruma from Matsuyama

This doll set is a fertility symbol and also a gift given to women who are expecting a birth of a child (on the day the child is born). It protects the new born infant from evil for a year. The doll has a history tied to Matsuyama and Dogo Onsen. If you're interested in the story, just follow the link.
