Announcement    Thank you for visiting Shin Crafts. We hope everything is fine with you.

Is spring coming to your town? We lined up Easter themed kokeshi dolls in March.
Unfortunately, Easter decoration is not common in kokeshi patterns. That’s why kokeshi craftemen designed unique kokeshi dolls in their own way. (Some of Easter egg have hatched.)

Rabbits are fortunate animals in Japan, too. Our ancestors imagined rasing their life’s fortunate like rabbit’s high jumping and gathering good information with long ears.
Even Samurai warriors wore the rabbit decorated helmet. (You can see one of the rabbit helmets on the Metropolitan museum’s(USA) web site.)

Kokeshi craftsmen made these kokeshi dolls with the hope of the happiness for all customers in their mind.
Please stay safe and have a beautiful, comfortable season.

Thank you.

Wooden kokeshi dolls from the kokeshi's homeland of Miyagi in Tohoku, Japan.

We are mainly handling Sakunami style Kokeshi, some original Kokeshi from active craftsmen in the other place and some vintage kokeshi doll and some daruma dolls.

In Tohoku area of Japan, there is wooden doll, which are called ‘KOKESHI’, it has been making over 150 years.
There are 11 styles, which are called traditional kokeshi (Dento kokeshi in Japanese). In Miyagi prefecture where Shin Crafts is located, there are 4 styles, which are Sakunami, Naruko, Yajiro and Togatta.
Kokeshi has histories and stories during long years also between the masters and apprentices.

We hope you will enjoy and explore your imagination with funny and cute wooden kokeshi dolls from our homeland in Tohoku.
