Togatta Kokeshi Event in Sugamo Part 2 巣鴨で遠刈田系伝統こけし製作実演 2

Continuing from my previous post about the Togatta Kokeshi event in Sugamo that Naoko and Emily attended back in early July 2016, here are some more photos showing the main display table. So many wonderful pieces available, and they really show how beautiful Togatta kokeshis can be.
Togatta kokeshis from large to small.
Kokeshi goods.
A kokeshi craftsman demonstrating the art of kokeshi making.
An area where kids could try out traditional Japanese toys.
The area where you could make your own kokeshi (1,000 yen).
Another view of the venue.
According to Naoko this was an excellent kokeshi event, and it's pretty obvious from the photos that there was a lot to see and do even though it was not held up in northeastern Japan, the home of traditional kokeshis. I can't wait to get back to Japan so we can go to these sorts of events all the time.
