Does anyone know anywhere I can purchase online beautiful antique japanese dolls in japan? I am wanting to know beautiful shops that may sell giisha dolls. I already know Alan Tate and jdollcollector.
There are various types of traditional dollssome representing children and babies, some the imperial court, warriors and heroes, fairy-tale characters, gods and rarely demons, and also people of the daily life of Japanese cities. Many have a long tradition and are still made today, for household shrines, for formal gift-giving, or for festival celebrations such as Hinamatsurithe doll festival, or Kodomo no HiChildren's Day. Some are manufactured as a local craft, to be purchased by pilgrims as a souvenir of a temple visit or some other trip. Expert Alan Pate notes that temple records refer to the making of a grass doll to be blessed and thrown into the river at Ise Shrine in 3 BC; the custom was probably even more ancient, but it is at the root of the modern doll festival or Hinamatsuri.
