Shigaraki-yaki is a type of Japanese pottery made in the eponymous region. If you’ve seen ceramic tanukis (Japanese raccoon dogs) outside restaurants or other establishments there’s a good chance they are made from Shigaraki-yaki. But forget tanukis for a moment because now an adorable set of miniature Totoro figurines from the magical film My Neighbor Totoro are being hand-produced by Shigaraki-yaki artisans.
The set of 3 Totoros include a large, medium and small Totoro that come in warm, earthy colors and adorn the gentle expression that captured the hearts of viewers around the world. The set of 3 retails for 11,664 yen. There’s also a lamp Totoro that comes with an LED light so that the clay figure glows from within. That one is 4101 yen.
