Carving with a knife (60 minutes), sanding (30 minutes), painting (30 minutes). The total time takes about 2 hours. Why not enjoy the experience with your favorite drink and a freshly fried donut? They are included in the price.

We have an original board designed to make it easier to cut the dogwood harvested in Naruko. Since we will also carefully guide you through the experience, even beginners can make cute baby kokeshi dolls with confidence! If you need a break, recharge with freshly fried donuts and your favorite drink from our café menu--included in the expereience fee! After the experience, we recommend taking a walk around the café to view our extensive kokeshi collection!
