This is a Dento-traditional Tsugaru kokeshi, by Masafumi Abo 阿保正文 (1983-) in Tohoku, Japan.

The characteristics of Tsugaru kokeshi are the Ainu pattern, made by one tree (the head and body are joined) and peony flower on the body.
The peony came from the family crest of the feudal lord Tsugaru family in the Edo period.

Kokeshi is a wooden doll that was first created in the Tohoku region over 150 years ago. There are 12 styles of traditional kokeshi doll. Tsugaru is one of them.
Masafumi has been making many kinds of original and cute kokeshi dolls currently, but this is the base of his creativity.
