High quality of Japanese Doll
Our Japanese dolls are all hand-crafted using authentic material. The making of the head, planting hair, painting the face (makeup), are all hand-crafted. Also, the costume (Kimono) is hand-crafted too, it is absolutely amazing. The costume was specially made for the doll. To make a costume for a doll, the pattern has to be small design (not able to be the same as for humans to wear). The doll wears many layers of beautiful kimonos with different hand-made patterns. The costume was assembled by a professional assembler. Now, it is getting harder to prepare clothes for dolls, so not many dolls can be made as before.History

A point worthy of special mention
This doll's head is made in a special way named as "Gokujou-Hongashira" more than the usual traditional way of making.
(Extremely high quality, traditional made)
In Japanese dolls, the most important part is the head including the face. The “Gokujou-Hongashira” is an authentic way of making heads. The base is hardened of wood chips and painted by “Gofun” recoating several times. “Gofun” is powdered shell of clams mixed with glue. The surface becomes porcelain.
Japanese doll is handmade one by one, there are slight differences in the ornaments and decorations of kimono.
●Little glue on a part or parts is coming off when it arrives you sometimes.
The parts are glued by hand, so you might see a little glue on a part but it is not defective. Also, a large part such as a hat, a helmet, large flowers, there is a possibility of coming off when it arrives you. It happens often, please attach it with wood glue on yourself.
