Hanamaki Kokeshi uses good wood called Kosambara (Aohada), which has a solid white white skin, and the neck is inlaid and the head moves swaying, and in the old days it is called "kick labocco", and it is now expressed as "kinakina", nationwide Even the southern line is a feature. Recently, I am seeking changes using colored materials such as enjus, sakura, zelkova.

History / History

The Southern Kokeshi is made in a quinakina style without painting, mainly by Hanamaki, and by his ancestors, Sasaki's and Aji Son's, and then painted by the influence of workers such as Naruko and Tokarida. In the early Showa era, the tradition was protected by the great-grandson, Sato Hideyoshi, etc. Currently, it is inherited by Tadao Sato and Morizo Atsuson.
