Nagoro: Valley of the Dolls


A woman in a remote part of Japan makes life-sized dolls and poses them around the remote village she lives in. 37 residents. Over 300 dolls. :::shiver:::   :) 

"Ayano Tsukimi (64) is living in Nagoro, a village in eastern Iya on Shikoku, one of the four main islands of Japan. Not many people are still living there. For those who die or move away, Ayano Tsukimi is making lifesized dolls in their liking and puts them in places that were important to them. The dolls are scattered around the whole valley.
She is married, but her husband and daughter are living away from her in Osaka. She's living alone with her 83 year old father in the house of her family."
