To me "momiji" means the colored maple leaves in Fall, which the Japanese love to celebrate, much like the sakura (cherry blossoms) in Spring. But lately I've been seeing a very different kind of momiji online, and they look like this:
These extremely cute modern kokeshi-type dolls are message dolls. If you turn one upside down you'll find a tiny folded card on which you can write a note to whomever you're going to give the doll to. Or if you don't want to give this doll away (which I can completely understand), you can just write a secret message to yourself.
Problem is there are soooo many cute momiji, it's not possible for me to pick just one, I might just have to start collecting them. Which momiji is your favorite?
