This beautiful wooden Kokeshi Doll is irresistibly cute and combines a typically simple yet stylish Japanese design with a distinctive, contemporary feel. Each Kokeshi Doll is given its own name by the craftsman who lovingly created it which ensures that every Kokeshi Doll radiates its own truly individual spirit.

I received this item 2 days after I ordered so, already being impressed at the speed of the delivery, I opened my package.
I ordered this item as a gift so I had it gift wrapped. The doll was wrapped up simply and delicately but it looked lovely.
The doll itself is of a very high quality and is beautifully finished.
Thank you!

FREE Japanese style gift-wrapping!

In Japan the presentation of your gift is almost as important as the gift itself so in true Japanese style we can offer you a FREE gift-wrapping service! We wrap your gifts using a special Japanese textured paper to which we then affix either a small origami crane bird (which represents love and peace in Japan) or a mizuhiki (coloured wire) motif.

If you would like your order gift-wrapped please remember to select the Gift-Wrapping option from the drop down box on the product page when placing your order, if you do not select this option we will assume that you do not require gift-wrapping.
