A Kokeshi on "Itte Q!" "世界の果てまでイッテQ!"のこけし

One of our favorite TV programs in Japan is called Sekai no hate made itte Q! 世界の果てまでイッテQ!, a zany show where actors go around the world doing interesting things. Recently a new person showed up as a temporary replacement on the show, and it turns out that she's such a big traditional kokeshi fan that she brings them with her on location. For instance, during a recent episode of Itte Q! in Thailand she brought a kokeshi along, and based on the screen capture it looks like a Yamagata style. As I've noted in a couple of other blog entries we are seeing more and more traditional kokeshis on TV, which is great!
The lady holding the kokeshi is apparently not the kokeshi fan.
 Yes sir, kokeshis are definitely popular these days.
