Striving to capture the expressions and gestures of Kokeshi Dolls and the Four Seasons of Japan, Usaburo Kokeishi crafts unique Kokeshi dolls with rich expressions that appeal to customers worldwide. Utilising specially treated Mizuki Wood from the Gunma prefecture, the wood is then dried in the winter breeze peculiar to Gunma. Traditional methods stemming from the first generation, Usaburo, are still preserved today through the inscribing of the artwork with a chisel, or via a heated nichrome wire brush that carves the markings into the Mizuki Wood.
