In addition, manners and customs doll, Ichimatsu dolls made exactly like doll and popular actor made precisely small came to overflow in town.

Edo doll production began in the early Edo period (1600s) due to influence from Kyoto, but the unique Edo style is said to have begun 250 years ago in the Horeki era.
In this period, the Girl's Day dolls and Boy's Day dolls began to be made in the sophisticated and realistic Edo style. In the late Edo period, during the Bunka-Bunsei Period (1804-1830), doll culture reached its peak, and the helmet decorations used outdoors during the early Edo period were moved indoors, and Boy's Festival dolls and elaborate decorations modeled after real armor called Edo Kacchu were made.
Small, elaborate dolls called fuzoku ningyo that were made to look exactly like popular actors were also made, as well as ichimatsu ningyo were wildly popular.
