As soon as you cross Tomoe bridge into Miyoshicho Sasaki Toy Shop will appear before you, drawing your eye. An elegant curtain hangs in front of the ningyou shop and toy shop that sells popular toys and sweets.
This shop has been around since the time of the owner’s grandfather, a long-established store, that has grown and developed alongside Miyoshicho. The owner is very knowledgeable about the history of Miyoshicho and a very peculiar ningyou, a fun time. Don’t hesitate to ask him about his dolls or history.

The Sasaki toy store stocks a number of goods including “Miyoshi Ningyou” an old traditional local doll of Miyoshi. They also change the store display according to the season and sell and provide advice for decorations for traditional Japanese holidays such as flying carp flags and sekku dolls (samurai display helmets) for children’s day and even Ichimatsu dolls, a traditional Japanese dress up doll. They have a history of using only the safest and reliable manufacturers. Many of the dolls in the shop look extremely luxurious, more gorgeous than their price would suggest. Sasaki told us, “We want to sell things that are pleasing to customers and convince them it’s a good product.”

Sasaki also has history working for a doll wholesale company so he has a deep knowledge of the design and function of the dolls and how those have changed over time as well as the properties and materials used to make the dolls. It’s a peaceful and helpful shop where you can even get advice on the maintenance or anything else after purchase.

Also part of the Sasaki Toy Store is not only the doll shop but the toy shop that sells sweets, retro toys, new toys, and provides kids with things to do. The candy lottery is an especially popular point where kids can come buy snacks and get a chance to win free ones, it draws in kids very often.
They wanted to make a toy store for the local children who they want to grow up healthy and have fun things to do in their hometown. They have such a special passion that Santa even comes to deliver toys and keep the shop open during the holidays. Truly it is a one of a kind treasure in Miyoshicho.
