TOHOKU KOKESHI PAINTING CLASS – We mentioned in our previous video that Tokyo was a city from the future, but our visit to Miyagi Zao helped us learn a little bit more about Japan’s traditional side. We came across one of the most beautiful places that we’ve ever seen, Miyagi Zao Kokeshi Museum. Kokeshi are unique wood toys that have been created and developed exclusively in the Tohoku region. Here are the photos from our Kokeshi painting class!

Take up the challenge of making a Kokeshi doll after watching traditional Kokeshi craftsmen! You can make only one Kokeshi doll of your own in the world under the guidance of an artisan.

A big thank you Japan National Tourism Organization, ANA, and my readers for following and supporting me on this journey!

And now the question is, where shall we go next?


Happy Sustainable Travels!
