A journey to feel the “nature”, “hot springs”, “food” and “history” of the western part of Sendai

We have different types of wood materials. You can create your own design! You might just be the next pioneer in the world of Kokeshi Doll making!

You can choose from a variety of types of wood.
Although we have examples, you can create a design of your own.
Following the tradition of Sendai style Kokeshi Dolls, we will use two colors, black and red. We also have a slightly lighter red paint, which almost looks pink.
You can utilize these three colors to paint your Kokeshi Doll.
Wether it be a traditional style Kokeshi Doll or a somewhat avant-garde Kokeshi Doll that brings out your creativity.
