Japanese forgetfulness. "Kokeshi" pop and rustic design Kokeshi dolls have been nurtured as wooden toys in the Tohoku region. From 1945 to 1940, along with post-war reconstruction, souvenirs for people who set their feet to resorts, Produced as a souvenir of tourism, kokeshi dolls spread all over the country. The kokeshi doll-making technique, which is said to have originated in Shinchi, Togatta, has since taken root in various regions of the Tohoku region, and has been sublimated into folk art that reflects the climate of each region. Due to the post-war boom, "souvenir kokeshi" and "creative kokeshi" became widely known. In this book, we will introduce “traditional kokeshi”, which are deeply connected to the Tohoku region, the birthplace of kokeshi, along with their production areas and design features. edit/design cochae
