Creative Kokeshi, Yaji & Kita, Hot Tub


Quantity Available: 1

Inventory Number: 70294

  • Creative Kokeshi, Yaji & Kita, Hot Tub
  • Creative Kokeshi, Yaji & Kita, Hot Tub

NAME: Creative Japanese kokeshi of Yaji & Kita in a hot tub.

MAKER: Unknown

SIZE: 3-5/8"

CONDITION: Drilled hole behind dolls. Don't know what it is/was for.

NOTES: Yaji-san and Kita-san were fictional charaters in a comical novel called Hizakurige or Shank's Mare. They were bumbling travelers and the story tells of their misadventures on the Tokaido Road between Kyoto and Edo (now Tokyo). Some say they were on a pilgrimage to Kyoto but others say they wanted to escape their wives. This scene has them in a hot tub looking none too happy.

This product was added to our catalog on Saturday 20 June, 2009.
