We are planning a visit to Kyoto in May to visit the museum of SD (Superdolfie) dolls that belongs to the company Volks. Those dolls are a high-class brand and made for adults, though meanwhile there are other and more affordable ball-jointed dolls made in China and Korea. But Japan and Volks seem to have ultimate power over designing this type of doll and its fandom. One has to make a reservation to visit the museum and no photography is allowed. It is assumed that people will bring along their SD dolls, but I am not sure how they would react if I bring my Korean doll. To get an understanding of how Chinese people use and photograph those dolls, you can watch my shortfilm On the Japanese Doll Complex.
