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.
ZAO TAKAYU & Sub-strain ATSUMI Origins from Togatta Kokeshi, a variant that took on it's own style and life. Production of Zao began in the 1890s after a request from another merchant was made for Kijishi to produce Kokeshi in the Zao Resort. Influence on the style by one of it's originators, Akiyama Keichiro. Later the Atsumi style was developed in Yamagata & was considered to be a sub-strain of Zao. This st5le incorporated by Kijishi Abe Tsunematsu who was influenced by the Tsuchiyu, Togatta and Yamagata style dolls.
