Shinobu Craft shop

Traditional toyTottori City, Tottori Prefecture

The company was founded in 1946 by Noriyasu, the predecessor of the founder, to produce wooden crafts, folk crafts, and local toys.

In 1965, Kentaro took over the business and has been running it ever since.

The toys of the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac are handmade wooden toys made of cedar and cypress wood from within the prefecture, and the characteristics of each sign are simplified into six different colors and finished in a cute, somewhat modern style.
