Teru Teru Bozu  


teru-teru-bōzu is a handmade doll which is supposed to have the magical power to bring good weather and prevent a rainy day. Traditionally, Japanese farmers began hanging teru-teru-bōzu outside of their window by a string. Today, children make teru-teru-bōzu out of tissue paper or cotton and string and hang them from a window when they wish for sunny weather, often before a school picnic day. Hanging it upside down acts like a prayer for rain. teru-teru-bōzu are a very common sight in Japan. Children typically make them the day before the good weather was desired and chant "Fine-weather priest, please let the weather be good tomorrow."
