Kokeshi Dolls were originally hand carved by farmers in northern Japan as tokens of love and friendship for their family and friends. These beautiful, brightly coloured wooden dolls are irresistibly cute and combine a typically simple yet stylish Japanese design with a distinctive, contemporary feel. The Japanese Shop has an award-winning collection of authentic Japanese kokeshi dolls which are still largely handmade from cherry or mizuki trees using traditional methods and usually feature girls' faces and gorgeous floral designs. Every doll is given its own name by the craftsman who lovingly created it ensuring that every kokeshi doll radiates its own individual spirit!
