Hayase is a small mountain village in the South of the prefecture.
The dolls are related to the Inabata Clay dolls. They have been made for only about 30 years in the family of Yamada san 山田忠夫.
They became extinct in the Meiji period, while the Inabata dolls are still made.

From Inabata village (not Inahata)
They are quite similar to the Fushimi caly dolls from Kyoto.
See also Hayase clay dolls above.

A young boy who wanted to support his poor farmer father made a visit to the local Fushimi Inari shrine in Inabata village. There he stopped in front of a shop selling the Fushimi clay dolls from Kyoto.
The name of the boy was Akai Wakataroo Tadatsune 赤井若太郎忠常 Akai Wakataro Tadatsune.
He began making clay dolls from the clay of the Tanba region (akai nendo 赤井粘土 red clay). This was around 1570.

By 1855 there were almost a hundred different molds for the clay dolls in the family business.
Now a descendent in the fourth generation, Akai Misa 赤井みさ, still made these dolls, but passed away in 1981.
赤井君代 Akai Kimiyo is the fifth generation and handles about 300 different forms.



Now 赤井君代 Akai Kimiyo is the fifth generation.


The most famous is 天神 Tenjin,
made from mixed clay (neri Tenjin 練天神) or papermachee. The figure is usually mounted on a two-layer wooden dias.

This is a small museum northwest of Himeji in the foothills and outer suburbs.
Information about a sword maker:
Inabata san lived in Hikami-cho in Tanba, at the end of the Edo period. His teacher passed to him techniques and styles of the late Edo period. Aki Wakatara is said to have established this art in Tanba, and his family continued it.
... The older figures of Inabata tend to be more simply made and painted. Smaller pictures of figures [in brackets] are of the same character for comparison, and from the Alan Pate book. These clay dolls are also called tsuji ningyo.

They were most beautiful in the old homes without electricity, to be enjoyed in lamp light.
Locally, they are called "tsuchi biina つちびーな", clay hina dolls, since they were mostly made for the Dolls Festival.

The first generation was Maeda Saburoo-emon 前田三良右衛門, who died in 1913.
He was a tile maker and adapted his skills to make dolls similar to the Fushimi dolls.
The master of the third generation, Maeda Toshio 前田俊夫, died in 1968 and then they became extinct.
