Fukukan - Shimokawara-ware Doll Tiger Flute
Shimokawahara-yaki was a kiln used by the Tsugaru clan to make daily necessities. The feudal lord at that time was worried that there were few toys in the land of Tsugaru, and ordered people to make clay dolls during their leisure time in winter. Since then, various dolls such as pigeon flutes and zodiac flutes have been made for about 200 years, and they are popular among the people of Tsugaru as a representative local toy of Tsugaru.
