Ashiya Chigusa Ningyoo あしや千種人形 
posture dolls from Ashiya
..... handmade dolls that have been handed down and made by housewives in Ashiya as hobby handicrafts since 1951 in the postwar rehabilitation period.
Ashiya Chigusa Dolls originated from Kohagi Dolls. Kohagi Dolls have long been made in Hagi in Yamaguchi Prefecture. Our great master Ryo Araki (1900-2001) made sustained efforts to add refinements to Kohagi Dolls in accordance with the elegant character of Ashiya, thus completing Ashiya Chigusa Dolls.

The most attractive feature of Ashiya Chigusa Dolls is that we can create an abundant variety of postures and scenes according to ideas and genuine skills in spite of the familiar materials and simple structures.

Myoochin hibashi 明珍火箸 Himeji Myochin Wind Chimes



The “Myochin Tong Wind Chimes” creates a clear and subtle sound. These tongs were originally used as charcoal tongs in the tea ceremony, and now the prefectural authority recognizes this traditional craft. The Myochin family, who manufactured armor for the Himeji feudal government, invented these chimes. It is said that Rikyu Sen, founder of the tea ceremony, also enjoyed using these tongs.

Museum for straw craft 城崎麦わら細工伝承館
source : www.kinosaki-spa.gr.jp

quote
About two hundred eighty years ago, a craftsman came to Kinosaki for bathing in the hot springs. He sold flutes, tops, and other items that had colored straw pasted on them for the first time. Characteristically, crafts using straw have a pleasant feel, like silk, and high-grade luster.
In the museum, the works of modern craftsmen and the works from the Edo to Showa periods are on display.
