Fushimi doll

Fushimi dolls are clay dolls that were made near the Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto from the end of the Momoyama period to the beginning of the Edo period. It is said that among the more than 90 types of clay dolls in Japan, there is no one that does not follow the lineage of Fushimi dolls.

It is said that there used to be about 60 potteries along the Fushimi Kaido, which reached its peak in the late Edo period.

The manufacturing method of Fushimi dolls is to make a mold with clay, bake it in a kiln, and then color it with chalk and mineral pigments.
There are about 2,000 types of prototypes and earthen molds left at the kiln, and many of them are said to be dolls that express the customs and legends of the past.
