I have one of these that my husband purchased for me as a birthday gift when in Sapporo. We were visiting a gentleman who was a 4th gen owner of a kimono store where he had the doll in a case. Having befriended my husband while visiting a nearby shrine, we since have grown to be dear friends. I love the Japanese use of anthropomorphism In art ... Animals as humans ... & fell in love with the doll. It actually is a music box and plays 'Sakura' ... It is a gift I will always cherish!!!
