2014 Michinoku Kokeshi Festival 3 2014 みちのくこけし祭り3

Continuing from the previous blog entry, here are more photos of what we saw for sale on the floor of the 2014 Michinoku Kokeshi Festival. 
Ni-shaku (2-foot) 二尺 kokeshis for sale.
Among the wooden toys for sale were these beautiful kendamas . This traditional toy has become really popular in parts of the US in the last couple of years, but I rarely see real Japanese-made ones out here.
In the next blog I'll show the winning kokeshis from the completion, followed by an entry of what we saw in the Yamagata Kokeshi Kan located just down the hall from the festival.
