Kutani-yaki samurai dolls (dolls & helmets) bring hopes and dreams such as wanting a boy to grow up to be a healthy, kind-hearted man, avoiding disaster, growing up as a worthy heir, and wanting prosperity for your family.
Since the Nara period, May 5th was established as the date for the Boy's Day celebration. In the Edo period, it was actively celebrated among samurai families under the name of the "iris festival". This seasonal festival has became an important event to wish for the continued safe growth of boys, the heirs of the home, and family prosperity.
In the same way that the March 3rd Hinamatsuri is a seasonal festival that wishes for the blossoming of girls, the Boy's Day celebration on May 5th has become established as a seasonal festival for boys.

This Kutani-yaki ornament is created using gorgeous colorful colors such as the Kutani five colors, gold, silver, etc., together with advanced painting techniques, enhancing the value of this good luck charm. Whether used as an ornament, or given as a gift or souvenir, this is sure to cause great pleasure.
A feature of this Kutani-yaki ornament (made of porcelain) is that it can be enjoyed for many years. Unlike tableware, there is hardly any deterioration due to usage. If you take care of it properly, it can beautifully decorate a room for a long time.
Thanks to this, this is perfect for a variety of purposes such as as a celebration gift for giving birth, the Boys' Day celebration, etc.

[Handling Precautions]
*Decorative plates,​ ornaments,​ porcelain tiles etc: In places with bad stability,​ safely take proper care when setting and take measures to prevent falling.
*When storing,​ lightly wipe dry with a soft cloth to remove dirt and carefully store,​ especially for ornaments that use gold and silver.
*The bases of Kutani ware items are not coated with glaze. Minimal polishing has been performed but scratches may occur in places that come into direct contact with it. Take care when using on soft or easily damaged surfaces such as alcoves ("Toko-no-ma"),​ flower tables,​ shelves,​ tables and lacquer-finished surfaces,​ and be sure to lay something underneath.
*Vases,​ decorative plates,​ ornaments,​ porcelain tiles and other decorative items: In respects to aesthetics,​ finely colored decorative paint may be used. Refrain from using as tableware.
*For vases,​ especially ceramics (pottery): Should sealing treatment be insufficient,​ water may ooze out on rare occasions. Should water leaking occur,​ please contact the customer center.
*Using abrasive sponges,​ nylon or metallic scourers,​ cleansers etc may cause the gold,​ silver,​ paint or adhesive to peel off and damage the surface,​ so refrain from using.
*Do not use for anything other than its intended purpose.
