Part of the Around the World Series are a trio of Japanese children. The group was introduced during the 2012 R. John Wright Convention at a ticketed dinner event titled "Japanese Lanterns." Limited edition 100 pc.
"Akira" is all wool felt and five way jointed. He measures approximately 10" tall. He has a traditional bald pate and a wig of fine mohair. He is outfitted in a classic striped "yukata" robe made of hand dyed silk fabric with separately topstitched purple silk ribbons. Cotton shorts and stockings and handcrafted wooden sandals complete his authentic ensemble. Akira holds a wooden rod with a traditional handmade "koinobori" attached - a cloth carp-shaped kite to celebrate Boy's Day in Japan!
