Akita’s folkcraft is represented by Itaya-zaiku, which feels soft yet is strong, Akebizuru-zaiku, whose dark brown color has a rustic charm, the Nakayama Doll, which embodies the harmony of sophisticated vivid colors and simplicity of traditions, and the Yabase Doll, which involves careful painting on unglazed clay figures. All these tools and dolls enriched with local colors exhibit the warmth of Akita, a region of folkcraft.
