The roots of the birth of the wood-to-eye doll traces back to Kamo's "Kamo dolls" in the 8th generation Shogun Shogun Yoshimune's former year (1736-1741). "Kamo doll" which is the origin of the present Edo Kimomekira dolls carved wood carving using the remainder of the willow tree that makes a donkei box used by the Tigashi Takahashi serving as a shinto priest of Kamigamo Shrine Shrine and Horikawa family It is said that it was noticed in the doll, and it was made by making a costume into the grain. Kamo dolls were eventually commercialized by morphologists in Kyoto, and during the Masanori year (1711-15) it is said that there were many Kyoto puppet masters who went down to Edo. As Edo developed as a cultural center, the wooden jewelry also changed into Edo style.
As described above, the characteristics of the wooden puppet are produced from the "doll" of dolls, and the costumes are gathered along the mold, so the shape of the mold can be shown in the doll and costume as it stands. Therefore, the creativity of doll craftsmen who makes molds is easy to show, it is characterized by many original products. In addition, as explained above, as you dress in natural materials on the fuselage, you are dressed in costumes, so it is very hard to type and it will be decorated for a long time. In addition, there are many things that are somewhat smaller in size than hina dolls in costumes, which also features the point that it is easy to handle.
