JAPANESE HANDMADE TOYS ―A Tradition in Beauty―
This film introduces Japanese handmade toys of different types, shows how they are made and the materials which are used in tlie making. Japan abounds in toy folk crafts representing every corner of the country and toys explain much about the people who have produced them. For overseas visitors to Japan, toys often prove to be an excellent reminder of their japan trip.
There are many types: sometimes they represent a miniature of a festival float, a festival mask, a folk tale hero and an animal worshipped by adherents of ancient religion or a comical character. Toys invariably reflect the dreams and love of those who cherish them.
