In Japan, dolls are not just for girls to play with ラブドール . In fact, many boys and adults have dolls. These dolls are not necessarily played with, but celebrated. In fact, there are even two days out of every year dedicated to dolls.

Children are taught to look at, not touch, the dolls that are commemorated at these celebrations. Many of the Japanese porcelain dolls from centuries ago are not only made with exquisite detail, but also have a fine powder of crushed oyster shells brushed over their faces, hands and feet giving them a more ethereal appearance.

Today’s Japanese porcelain dolls, like those of yesteryear, are not just for play. They are for collectors also. Many of them are dressed in costumes represented many Japanese legends and stories from the past like the Samurai doll and the Emperor doll.

The geisha dolls are in traditional dress and makeup. Every detail on a Japanese porcelain doll is taken into consideration when they are created.

The beautiful geisha dolls arrive posed in positions of dance with the required fan or musical instrument.
