Kokeshi are wooden handmade artisanal dolls from Japan. The most prevalent theory is that they appeared during the Tempo period (1830 - 1843) of the Edo era (1603 - 1868) in the mountainous Tohoku region.
During the long winter months, when little work was available for the farmers, they started making kokeshi as toys for their childern. They could not afford the more expensive toys that were available in the larger cities. These toys were spotted by the tourists who came to this Tohoku region known for its wellness in the hot springs. Hence, Kokeshi became a nice souvenir.
