Have you ever heard of the “Japanese friendship doll”? This is not just an ordinary doll that you play with, but a piece of political history from the 1920s. At that time, Japan and the United States exchanged dolls to send a friendly political message. 58 dolls made their way from Japan to American museums and libraries. In addition to the doll in a flowered Yukata, the “Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys” also features fingernail-size teacups, pots, and beer steins. This cultural heritage not only prompts peace in a strange way, but also makes you thirsty when you look at it for a long time.
