Harikotora is a product of Japan's acceptance of tiger worship that originated in China. Hariko is a doll made by applying clay or papier-mâché to a wooden frame. This process is similar to the method used to make popular folk lanterns. In the Japanese countryside, friends and family gift Harikotora ornaments when a baby boy is born to symbolize good fortune. Harikotora was later used to decorate Tango no Sekku and Hassaku Festival events. Businesses also use Harikotora to pray for prosperity.
