Today, we arrived in Iwatsuki to explore the remarkable Togyoku dolls at the Tougyoku Dolls Museum. The town is renowned for its rich doll-making heritage, boasting over 300 skilled doll-makers.

Soon the town became a center for the production of hina dolls, and the tradition continues to this day.

Fine old zuishin dolls from the Meiji period (1868-1912), approx. 8” (20.3cm) tall.
