Tsuchiyu Kokeshi Dolls

Tsuchiyu Kokeshi Dolls are one of three most famous kokeshi dolls as well as those from Naruko and Togatta.

Tsuchiyu kokeshi dolls are distinguishable from other kokeshi dolls due to having a smaller head and a thin body. They also have eyes on the sides, a rounded nose and a small mouth. When you turn the neck of a kokeshi doll, you will hear it creak. You can experience painting a kokeshi doll at Tsuchiyu hot spring resorts. Why don’t you make your own kokeshi doll?
