|Voices of Customers|
Attending doll class was the most interesting hobby for me, whilst living in Japan. It was a great opportunity to learn something very traditional and very unique. At the end of a class it was very satisfying to see that I had made something that was so beautiful and that I had understood a little more about traditional Japanese culture and folklore.
