Relief-Like 'Matsumoto Oshiebina' Dolls Collected by Berami Doll Shop, Only Existing Oshiebina Manufacturer, in Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture

     Oshiebina dolls, which were initially made by women in samurai families in the Edo Period, became one of Matsumoto's major industries in the Meiji Era upon the establishment of a mass-production system. But the dolls 'went extinct' in the late Meiji-early Taisho period, due to growing popularity of three-dimensional dolls in Kimono. Berami Doll Shop is trying to revive the Oshiebina tradition.
