We are planning a relocation to Japan later this year and will be closing our business here in the UK. We have not finalised the closing date but it is likely to be mid June.  We have reduced prices by 30% as all stock must go!

To all our customers, a big thank you for your custom and support over the last 18 years. It has been hugely enjoyable and a pleasure running Japanya. Thank you and best wishes for the future.

Fantastic Ichimatsu Japanese Dolls - boy and girl pair - in shichi-go-san traditional costumes

These are beautiful vintage Japanese Ichimatshu dolls wearing Shichi-Go-San costumes. The girl is wearing a blue silk furisode (long-sleeved) kimono with a chrysanthemum design and authentic obi. The detail is wonderful - she even has has a little purse hanging from her obi. The boy is wearing a beautiful haori (complete with miniature himo strings) decorated with samurai ships.
The dolls' faces are flesh coloured with facial features hand painted on. Their eyes appear to be made of glass.
