A Kokeshi story is a tribute to Japanese pop culture, perhaps seen naively through an Otaku’s eyes. Cosplayers, kokeshi dolls and something out of an ancient painting of a samurai adorn the landscape upon which rains the petals of cherry blossoms. The famous vocaloid, Hatsune Miku, listens to the music of the spheres through her headphones.
