The Naruko style of kokeshi doll is the most popular in some various styles of kokeshi. It has been said that it started in Naruko, a hot spring resort area in Miyagi in the Tohoku region, in the late Edo or early Meiji period (around 1860).
One of the unique characteristics of these kokeshi is that their heads squeak when turned. It sounds like “kyu-kyu”. Artisans of Naruko kokeshi doll have their sophisticated technique that loosely embeds its head in the body, and the technique enables the sound.
These kokeshi dolls have flared shoulders and skirts, and their bodies are often painted with a chrysanthemum motif. That is pretty figure wearing kimono with a sash tied.
