Doraemon Senjafuda


Senjafuda featuring the popular children's anime character, Doraemon. This shows how senjafuda has become a mostly novelty item (although this particular one was printed utilizing traditional woodblock-printing methods).

The phenomenon of senjafuda dates back to the late 18th century. They were originally made by pilgrims to paste on the walls of temples and shrines as a sort of devotional graffiti. Later they became collector’s items, and by the middle of the 19th century they had become miniature masterpieces of woodblock printed art. Senjafuda depict a dizzying variety of themes with meticulous craftsmanship and vivid, stylish graphic design.
