Fushimi dolls are said to be the ancestors of all the varieties of clay dolls in Japan. Feel the atmosphere of the only shop that continues the doll production.
Fushimi ningyo figurines are molded with clay, fired in a kiln, and then decorated with gofun (white chalk pigment) and coloured mineral pigments. They are created during one-year cycles. Nowadays, the traditional methods of production remain constant, except for the replacement of the fire-burning kilns with electric kilns due to environmental considerations.
From mid-April to August, how about trying your hand at Fushimi doll molding? You can only experience this here, at Tanka.
(You can't take the molded figurine with you).
