Japanese Dolls Display at Rafu Bussan Inc.

One of the most impressive sections of Rafu Bussan Inc. is the right back wall of the store which is filled with cases of these beautifully intricate "ningyo" or Japanese dolls. These collectors items are not meant for everyday play. Often they are dressed in traditional Japanese clothing including everyday kimono, bridal kimono, traditional samurai wear, and peasant work clothes. Each one is unique and tells a different story than the last one.
