Japanese want to keep their heritage alive, especially with all of the influences of the outside world now thrust upon Japan. The Japanese doll illustrates many aspects of these heritage. The samurai doll embodies the folklore and culture of Japan. It is revered as a mesmerizing deity to inspire the young boy to honor the samurai morals of the past.
Knowing the history and importance of the samurai dolls, we can begin to understand that these dolls are not just decorative art objects, but important symbols of the Japanese samurai of the past and the code of ethics by which he lived.
