Arima Ningyo-fude

Arima Ningyo-fude is a very unique craftwork which makes a brush into a toy.
It is said that in the middle of the Warring States period, a man called Isuke who lived in Kobe had the original idea.
A Ningyo-fude is a device by which a lovely miniature doll will come out of a brush holder if you stand it up.
It is highly popular as a souvenir, as well as a brush.
