Kokeshi Making

The distinctive wooden Kokeshi dolls are a well-known traditional Japanese craft from onsen areas throughout the Tohoku region of Japan. Tsuchiyu Onsen in Fukushima City is one of the leading kokeshi producers in Japan. There are several workshops in the Tsuchiyu Onsen and surrounding areas where guests can paint their own unique Tsuchiyu Kokeshi. Why not mark your journey to Fukushima by making a one-of-a-kind kokeshi?
There are also several exhibition spaces in Tsuchiyu Onsen where you can see a wide range of kokeshi, and nearby in St. Anna’s Garden, the Nishida Memorial Museum houses a collection of 10,000 kokeshi that highlights the charms of Tsuchiyu Onsen.
