This is a huge 32cm high Nemariko Kokeshi doll, by KAKIZAWA, Yoshinobu who is a Naruko style kokeahi craftsman.

Nemariko Kokeshi is a particular design in Naruko style. The name ‘Nemariko’ came from the words of ‘Nemaru Ko’. Nemaru is a dialect in the Tohoku area that means ‘sitting’. Ko is child in Japanese. 

If the doll is big, you will see not only the doll but the beautiful wood grain. That remind us that kokeshi dolls are a blessing of nature.

Note: Please hold the body part when you pick up this doll. Due to the weight, if you pick it up by head, it will be easy to drop.
