Jizo Kokeshi


During the late Edo period (1600-1867) kokeshi dolls were likely a child's first toy. Originating in the Tohuko region north of Tokyo, kokeshi appealed to travelers and quickly grew popular as souvenirs. Today, kokeshi are widely collected as a celebrated traditional folk art in Japan.

This hand-painted kokeshi is carved to resemble a Jizo-the protector of children, firemen, and travelers. Imported from Japan and comes in a box ready to give as the perfect gift.

Dimensions: 4.5" tall
