Do you know this guy? His name is Teru Teru Bouze! (てるてる坊主。)Literally : ‘Shiny Monk’. A paper doll ususally hung by the window to bring good weather. Made from balled up tissue. Children in Japan make these the day before an outdoor events, like picnics!

In early summer, most parts of Japan get visited by a rainy season(Tsuyu : 梅雨) and a lot of times, kids make “teru teru bouze” to get sunny weekends!
