Ainu Bears

The Ainu are the indigenous people of Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan's four main islands.

Ainu Bear

To the Ainu, the bear is a sacred creature and forms the focus of many Ainu rituals.

Our hand carved bears date from the 1970s and are a fine example of Ainu folk art.

Ainu Bears now SOLD OUT. If you wish us to find one for you please contact us.
