Sakunami Kokeshi

Sendai's Sakunami Kokeshi
The traditional Japanese dolls known as kokeshi were first made in the Tohoku region of Japan. Sendai's Sakunami Onsen area is home to a particular variety called Sakunami Kokeshi. Kokeshi dolls are known for their simple construction and enlarged heads. Sakunami Kokeshi in particular have a very thin trunk and basic, but charming faces. Sendai's kokeshi are a famous product of Japan and would make a great souvenir to take home to your family!
