Back in January Naoko and attended the Tokyo Kokeshi Friends Association 東京こけし友の会meeting, the biggest gathering of the year for the Tokyo folks. As I recall it was a full house, with well over 100 people in attendance. There were also a couple of kokeshi craftsmen, a news crew from Aomori NHK, and even a kokeshi book author. All the kokehis in the numbered raffle were new, which was a definite treat for those who don't get up to Tohoku that often. Fun was had by all. For the sake of expediency I'll simply post the photos without captions. Enjoy!
