Gosho ningyo or palace dolls have been around since the Heian era (794-1192).  Gosho Dolls were used to celebrate many events such as the birth of first born sons and other important events.

From the eighteenth century, the Imperial Court of Kyoto gave Gosho dolls to the visiting daimyo as a way of imparting news and as a reward for their loyalty.

Gosho dolls are also easily recognized with their chubby and round white faces.
