KRAKURI

KRAKURI Gifts

Japanese love of robots lies in the history of the Karakuri Doll. Until now there has been little interest from outside Japan regarding the Karakuri Ningyo craft, and its influence on technology and the arts. Mechanical karakuri dolls were first made around the end of the Edo period, in the early 1800s.
