Japan is one of the world's leading doll-manufacturing countries in terms of its variety and extremely high quality. The fact that the industry has been active for so many centuries is unique in the world. Dating back to the middle of the Edo period, gosho dolls with big heads and dainty features were manufactured by applying many layers of whitewash and polishing them. Saturated with great expression, their features ranging from eyes, mouths to the tip of fingers are so graceful and subtle that the quality is outstanding among many other Japanese dolls. Many kinds of them were produced to wish for the well-being of children. You can see in the image substituting dolls for Benkei and Ushiwaka.
