Miss Tokushima

The staff of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture unpacked a returned exhibit Wednesday, Mar. 2, 2011, but it was done with great affection. The Japanese doll, named Miss Tokushima, had just toured Japan, impressing museum goers and school children with her story. While the friendship doll exchange in the 1920s couldn’t head off the horrors of World War II, it reminds us that ordinary people tried to do something before that time by extending their goodwill across the Pacific in the form of a child’s toy.
