Maximum quantity available reached.

This stunning book gives a comprehensive inside look at kokeshi dolls, from the skilled woodworkers behind the designs to their important cultural significance.


Kokeshi are the simple and charming traditional Japanese dolls characterized by their cylindrical shape and lack of arms and legs. Historically made as children's toys in Japan's northern region of Tohoku, they have now become a popular collector's item and have even inspired famous architects and artists.


In this visual guide, readers will find an overview of the different types of dolls and how kokeshi dolls are crafted, including information on tools and woods used. There are also interviews with leading kokeshi craftspeople worldwide and detailed insights about both traditional dolls and the modern ones being crafted today. 


Furthermore, there is an exploration of the cultural significance of kokeshi dolls—both historically and for the areas of northern Japan that rebuilt themselves after their region was decimated by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011, with a guide to visiting Japan’s kokeshi regions.


On top of this, there is a unique guide about how to buy the dolls—either directly from Japanese artisans or stockists worldwide.

Filled with artist interviews, gorgeous photos, and firsthand travel experience, author Manami Okazaki has created a book to be enjoyed by all—from serious collectors to woodcrafters, interior designers, architects, armchair travelers, and anyone with an interest in Japanese culture and travel.
