Background

Kokeshi dolls are a type of traditional Japanese souvenir. The exact origin of them is unclear, but it is known that they were originally hand-carved from wood in Northern Japan, before gradually spreading in popularity to the rest of the country. They are bought and exchanged among friends, often with messages written and stored inside their hollow bases.

My daughter and daughter in law were ‘enchanted’ ... it was a gift in memory of my first visit to Japan last year ... and the cherry blossom though late ... has been superb this year.
