■Karakuri puppet collection■

Karakuri Ningyo are puppets with sophisticates mechanism, that could be recognized as robots in old days.
Their history could be traced back for 300 years, and even today they are performed in traditional
festivals all over Japan.
We noticed this valuable tradition, and researched the art through field works in local venues.
The exhibits are qualified replicas; there are approximately 40 of them available.
Each of them will be exhibited any time, accompanied by performance and lecture be experts.
We have held many exhibitions, but this is the first time to show a video of this karakuri collection!
