Welcome to my Dento-Traditional Kokeshi Collection, these dolls are not for sale. Traditional Kokeshi have been created in wood form since the late Edo (1603-1867) period in Japan. There are 10 prefectures which produce Traditional Kokeshi, with a few additional sub-strains.
HIJIORI design was developed in the Hijiori hot spring resort in Okura-mura, Yamagata prefecture. It is the only style to inherit properties from two main styles, Togata and Narugo Kokeshi. Some people believe that the originator of Hijiori Kokeshi was master Shusuke Sato who was from Togata. ( 30 Images 30 Dolls )
