Our “Decorating a Miniature Kokeshi Doll” experience was once limited to events and outside stores but can now be done anytime at our main store Shimanuki!

Choose your favorite shape from many kokeshi dolls and freely draw your own original kokeshi dolls using markers!
Your own original kokeshi makes for an ideal sightseeing memory or souvenir of Sendai and the Tohoku region!

Our historical shop inside the Sendai shopping arcades sells kokeshi dolls and various crafts from Miyagi and Tohoku. Some Sendai crafts and special items sold in our shop are not sold at any other store. Besides shopping, visitors can enjoy hands-on experiences such as kokeshi doll painting or making an LED candle.
