In our Fukuoka prefecture, it is said that people associated with temples and shrines have had a custom of cherishing unglazed dolls since the Kamakura Era about 800 years ago. The origin of Hakata dolls was in 1600, when many craftsmen gathered in the area with the move of feudal lord Kuroda Nagamasa to Chikuzen(Fukuoka Prefecture) to rule. After the Meiji Era, artists produced modern Hakata dolls and presented them at international exhibitions in Paris(1890), Saint Louis, and other cities all over the world.The dolls earned an excellent reputation, becoming known throughout the world as dolls representative of Japan and being exported overseas.
