ICHIZO PROFILE

These dolls are dressed in authentic armor.
The armor is made by the same process as the real thing.
The doll's faces are not printed. They are carefully painted by hand individually.
First the artisans paint the dolls, creating a 3-D effect.
Then, the doll's eyes are carefully drawn on one by one using six colors. In this way-no doll has an identical expression.
There are many styles of dolls “SAMURAI BAND”“SAMURAI RIDER”etc...
Please enjoy looking at our traditional Japanese dolls : “ICHIZO DOLL”
