Barroom Kokeshi - Story No. 1: "Popularity"

掲載日:2016年3月27日更新

The first (?) short animation movie in the world of folk toys, presented by toys representing Fukushima, such as the "akabeko" and "tsuchiyu kokeshi doll."
* This movie is fictional. Please note when buying the folk toys that they do not actually talk.

[Introducing the Characters]
"Akabeko (Red Cow)"
One of the representative folk toys of Fukushima Prefecture from Fukuman Kokuzoson Enzo Temple in Yanaizu of Aizu. The red body wards off evil spirits.
He is a completely passive beta male, but he enjoys drinking.
The "beko" is available in a variety of forms now, and they have become stylish.

"Miharugoma (Horse toy)"
These are carved wooden horses based on the legend of Sakanoue no Tamuramaro from 1,200 years ago. They are good-luck charms, with the black horse bringing good fortune in being blessed with children, easy delivery and child rearing, and the white horse bringing peace and security in old age, and a long life. The black and white horses can be kept together as they make good partners.
Boasting an angular form combined with vivid colors, they have a burning ambition to become more popular.

"Kokeshi Mama (a Tsuchiyu Kokeshi Doll)"
She is the proprietress of Barroom Kokeshi. She is a kokeshi doll from Tsuchiyu Onsen, a hot spring resort in Fukushima City. She doesn't talk much, and is enshrouded in mystery, but she is well-known among the folk toys as the proprietress of the bar.
Kokeshi dolls are apparently becoming increasingly popular overseas, but how she feels about this remains a mystery.
