Having these Kokeshi's tucked away is a bad idea. Much better to share their beauty and let them shine. We started a blog post 7/11/17 introducing the Kokeshi .

Kokeshi dolls are Japanese wooden dolls traditionally made for children. It is said that Kokeshi were originally sold to visitors to hot springs in the Tohoku region of Japan during the late Edo period (1600-1868), to supplement business and keep workers' hands busy during the winter months.
