"Awa Puppet Theater” that has been handed down as a local performing art from around the middle of the Edo period in Tokushima. This is a series taken in various situations using the "head" of the doll used in the Ningyou Jyoruri.By photographing in nature, he captured the expression of a doll different from the stage and discovered the charm of a new traditional culture.
