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.
YAJIRO (Nesting Yajiro Dolls here) created in Miyagi prefecture. One of the most colorful and varied in body shapes. Made from many types of wood, the preferred though is Mizuki i.e. white dogwood. Considered 1 of the 4 originating, main-oldest, strains of Kokeshi.
