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.
YAMAGATA is a sub-strain of Sakunami Kokeshi. Believed to have been created by two Kobayashi family members who relocated to Yamagata and were originally trained to produce Sakunami dolls. Their technique varied from the original Sakunami style earning the new style name. (31 Images 31 Dolls)
