The Tsugaru Group

This doll is one of the newest groups. In 1920s, these dolls were made by craftsmen and as these were not originally made as toys, as were all the other groups, they were created especially for collectors. However, the craftsmen applied delightful costume based on traditional Tsugaru local festival decorations, and these body patterns are successful to express nostalgic atmosphere in Tsugaru.
