こけし飛行機

Kokeshi Doll Airplane

A Kokeshi Doll is a Japanese folkcraft and is a must have souvenir for tourists who visit Japan.

An airline company cooperated with Miyagi Prefecture and campaigns the picture that a Kokeshi Doll became an airplane that was drawn on the poster.

The people who saw that said “It seems so ugly but it looks cute” and became the reputation then it motivated Kokeshi Doll craftsmen to make the real Kokeshi Doll airplanes and it was shown. It became the reputation in a moment such as what is this? ugly, cute and some people started to say I want to buy it if it’s sold.

It is not for sale at the moment.

「こけし」は日本の民芸品で、
海外からの観光客がおみやげに買っていくものの一つです。
宮城県と航空会社が連携してキャンペーンを行い、
ポスターにこけしが飛行機になっている絵が描かれていました。
それを見た人たちが「なんだか気持ち悪いけど可愛い」
と話題にして評判になり、
それなら本物のこけし飛行機を作ってみよう、と
こけし職人が作って披露されました。
なんだこれ、気持ち悪い可愛いとたちまち評判になり、
売っているなら買いたいという人も出てきました。
今のところ非売品です。
