Pop-up shop, talk and exhibition by Manami Okazaki, the author of Kokeshi, from Tohoku with Love.
Kokeshi are traditional wooden dolls that are predominantly made in rural hotspring villages in the Tohoku region. Originally a children’s toy made by farmers, these simple and charming folktoys have captured the hearts of collectors around the world.
More than 100 kokeshi will be available, from traditional,
orthodox types to kawaii, modern varieties. A rare
opportunity to purchase new kokeshi by master
artisans in the Tohoku region.
