Japan Folk Art Museum (Nihon Kogei Kan)
The Japan Folk Art Museum was established to preserve and promote the creation of Japanese traditional handicrafts, which have been developed over centuries. In 1950, the Japan Folk Art Museum was first opened at Dojima, Kita Ward in Osaka, in a renovated rice warehouse built during the Edo period.
In 1960, the 10th anniversary of the Museum's founding, the current building was constructed and opened. Traditional handicrafts have been used in daily lives of ordinary Japanese for centuries. Although these items are not created by famous artists, they have highly artistic qualities.
The Japan Folk Art Museum has worked to preserve and promote handicraft techniques, while carrying out activities to help enhance quality of life by promoting the use of beautiful handicrafts in daily life. The Museum exhibits many handicraft items, which represent excellent Japanese handicraft techniques that are recognized worldwide. Visit the Museum to view the ideal balance of functionality and beauty in Japanese traditional handicraft, an integral component of Japanese culture.

The figures are made from rather strong Washi paper. The motives were people from town, like the postman, or Fukurokuju (a god of good luck), Komuso wandering monks and others.
The figures were equiped with two bamboo sticks, to make simple movements.
These toys for children have been quite popular until the Showa period.
