Kokeshi are wooden handmade artisanal dolls from Japan. The most prevalent theory is that they appeared during the Tempo period (1830 - 1843) in the mountainous Tohoku region. Initially, they were intended as toys for the children. Later they became popular souvenirs and real decorative items, for some even collector items.

More information about traditional kokeshi, and the Sakunami style in specific, can be provided after purchase.

Fakapapa is a company specialized in trading kokeshi and we are based in the European Union. So, NO HIDDEN HIGH IMPORT TAXES WITHIN THE E.U.
