Those are traditional Kokeshi. As you can see, they look a bit different from their more contemporary versions.

If I remember correctly, this picture was taken in a shop in Bikan, Kurashiki.

    1. Yes, while the contemporary ones are cute, in my eyes they’re just one of the many cute things people who like Japanese cute things like. The traditional ones have something more to them, not sure what. (or maybe that’s just me because I prefer stuff that handmade as opposed to industrially made, I don’t know)

      Thanks for stopping by.
      I don’t know much about Korea (almost nothing to be honest), but I’m not exactly surprised. 🙂
