Kokeshi are Japanese wooden dolls that have been crafted for more than 150 years as a toy for children, originating from the northeastern region of Japan.

They are handmade from wood, predominantly cherry or mizuki, and have a simple trunk and head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face. In the traditional style of kokeshi they have no arms or legs.

The pattern on the body can vary - sometimes with floral designs and other times with ring designs, mostly painted in red, black and yellow inks then covered with a layer of wax.
