Kato Yasuaki  Kojo Tamura or Tanaka  Masako Ueki.jpg  This Kokeshi has been identified as a "Hot Water System" Kokeshi. Which usually classifies it under "Tsugaru" the artisan is Ueki Masako DOB 1908. I initially thought it to be a creative doll still on the fence about the type. Artisan could have been transitional. Please provide feedback if you know anything about this artist.  Souvenir Unidenntified Artist  I was informed by Tomoko Young that the writing on the side is not the signature, it says Towadako (lake Towada ), located between Akita & Aomori.

Unidentified Artist  Can you help us identify this doll  Yamauchi Kazuhito? Can you verify for us?  Written it says Tsugarudakoe (Tsugaru - Dako ( or Tako ) - e ) is the Traditional Folk Kite that has drawing of Tsugaru Nebuta in HIrosaki city, Aomori. One of the famous artist of Tsugarudakoe is Yamauchi Kazuhito. The painting of this Kokeshi doll looks alike of Yamauchi Kazuhito's style so the Kokeshi artist who did painting on this doll might be inspired from Yamauchi Kazuhito. Info provided by Tomoko Young. Not 100% sure, just a guess.
