Things to know

The Tsugaru Kokeshi Doll Museum displays various kinds of kokeshi, traditional Japanese dolls. With round heads and cylindrical bodies, Kokeshi dolls are shaped like humans and differ in design depending on the region in which they are created. The museum also provides new kokeshi designs.
The first floor is free of charge, and there you can see artisanal kokeshi production exhibitions, try to paint a kokeshi, and buy kokeshi merchandise. The second floor has an entrance fee, and there you can see a traditional kokeshi exhibition with over 4,000 kokeshi dolls. In the art collection section, there are kokeshi dolls modeled after people such as prime minister Shinzo Abe and the famous mountain climber Yuichiro Mirua.
On the third weekend of October each year, there are many events such as the National Traditional Kokeshi Craftsman Festival, kokeshi goods sales, art and photo exhibitions from local artists, and much more.
