An okiagari-koboshi or okiagari-kobōshi ("little priest standing up") is a traditional Japanese doll made of paper and designed in such a way that it returns to the vertical position if it is tilted to the side. Okiagari-koboshi dolls are considered lucky charms, a symbol of perseverance and resistance.
