Japanese Set  Unsigned  Traditional Kokeshi Doll and Ejiko Doll  Kanno, Shouichi  DOB 1935 Master Agatsma Kichisuke (Signature deciphered by Tomoko Young).  Kikuchi Kei 菊地啓 (きくちあきら)  YOB 1923 Kikuchi Kotaro  Kobayashi Shouzo (小林昭三)  Kobayashi Shouzo (1942 ~ ) one can say it is Togatta but it's origination is affiliated mostly to Hijiori style.  Serious Kokeshi collectors in Japan often consider all the artists relating to Ushizo (  Sato Ushizou → Kobayashi Zensaku → Kobayashi Shouzou )  as Hijiori Kokeshi artists because of the career of Sato Ushizo.  He worked in HIjiori area when he was young and later on he moved to Togatta village so we can see the influence of Hijiori Kokeshi over the style of Ushizou's doll that is very different from other classical Togatta Kokeshi doll.
