Kobe dolls are also known as "spook dolls" and are known for their eerie and comical appearance.
From the Meiji era to the present day, it has been lost twice, but it has been revived each time, and it is loved not only by local Kobe but also by collectors all over the world.

This work is called "drinker", and it is a very fun work in which a black doll like lacquer keeps drinking with a red sake cup and sake bottle.
It is a work that stirs the imagination, wondering if writing "Kotobuki" on the red sake cup is a celebration.
