Naritaya kabuki dolls celebrate the most famous lineage of stage actors of the house Naritaya founded by Ichikawa Danjūrō and their signature stage roles that make up “The Kabuki Eighteen.” Ichikawa Danjūrō VII (1791-1859) established these eighteen dramatic characters during the Tenpō era (1830-1844) upon his return to the Edo stage from his tour in Kansai.
