Udogawara tsuchiningyoo 鵜渡川原土人形
clay dolls from Udogawara village

Sakata



This Kintoki Strong Boy has the eyes raised and holds a rather cute bear.

They have been made from the end of the Edo period to the beginning of Meiji. They are even older than the "Old Sakata Dolls 古酒田人形 using mineral colors.
For Udogawara dolls, plant colors are used.
There are only a few samples still to be found now.




The soft plant colors are still to be enjoyed to our day.

sleeping baby in a basket えじこ ejiko
ejiko were made from straw, woven around a bucket. They were layered with special material to absorb little accidents, with a special hole for the buttocks of the baby. The urine could be collected in the lower part of the bucket.
They are a speciality of Tohoku to keep the babies warm in the cold winter months.

In the many local dialects they are called
shigura ツグラ、 shibura ツブラ、izumi イズミ、izume イズメ、bugo フゴ、ijiko イジコ、ejiko エジコ

Sometimes the kokeshi can nodd with the little head.
