Collector - handcrafted wooden dolls from Japan.

Kokeshi are Japanese dolls from the Tohoku region in Northern Japan. These handmade wooden dolls have a colourful history and a controversial reputation.

They were traditionally made as guardians of children but later became popular amongst Japanophiles and collectors. Kokeshi are thought to date back to the early 19th-century and they were produced by kijishi, woodworkers at the Shinichi Shuraku, near the Togatta Onsen in Zao.
