Japanese Dolls

Traditional dolls, in Japan, are called 'ningyo', they have been a part of Japanese culture since ancient times. As with all Japanese cultural items, the making of Japanese dolls has become an exacting craft and some famous doll makers have become National Living Treasure and Intangible Cultural Property of Japan. The dolls are made from varying materials clay, wood, plaster and fabric, even paper. They all have their own particular charm, from the art dolls to the folklore dolls. Some are used in Japan's famous festivals, such as Hina Matsuri, March 3rd, Doll or Girl's Day and Tango No Sekka, May 5th, Boy's or now Children's Day. They are a pleasure for the collector and give an immediate Japanese touch to a room.
