How to buy a kokeshi link こけしを買うのリンク

For the English-speaking kokeshi fans, here's a useful link that I found on the Tokyo Kokeshi Friends Association web site, including recognizing kokeshi shapes, recent kokeshi events, and how to make purchases.
It was done by the Aoba Kokeshi Association 青葉こけし会 in Sendai, and while a good amount of the text is in Japanese there's also enough English that you should be able to navigate around for some very useful information on a variety of kokeshi-related topics. I'm really impressed that the Aoba folks took the time to do the translation for non-Japanese speaking kokeshi enthusiasts.
