The purpose of The All Gunma Modern Kokeshi Concours is to improve the quality and design of Gunma's proud "modern kokeshi dolls", to enhance their techniques, and to deepen the appreciation of kokeshi art.
This year marked the 62nd contest, and the Usaburo Kokeshi craftsmen submitted many unique kokeshi dolls.
Unfortunately, due to the spread of the covid-19, the exhibition was closed to the public again this year.
However, you can view them on the official website of the contest.
