I want to recommend this store because if you are unable to get to the various onsens in the countryside, you don't have to be disappointed. Here you will find all the region's styles of kokeshi in different sizes and a good price range.
Prior to my recent trip I did not realize how difficult it would be to reach the onsen resorts. Being without a hire car, my daughter and I were unable to visit kokeshi workshops off the main drag.
Now I can understand why Yahoo Japan has over a thousand kokeshi listings. The auction service may be your only way to acquire that special kokeshi from Aomori you've got your eyes on. Goods from Japan can process the order for you.
Recently I made several purchases at Shimanuki Honten, and I was extremely pleased to find a kokeshi in the Kijiyama style, which is my favorite.
