The Tokyo 2020/21 Olympics are not just about the capital city of Japan but also various other regions around the country. Sadowara in the north of Miyazaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu is famous for its folk dolls. Drawing on this centuries-old local culture, the official merchandise catalog for the Games includes the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Japanese Spaniel Sadowara Folk Doll. The ceramic ornament is a lovingly crafted and cute miniature of a Japanese Chin toy breed, made by hand out of clay and then painted individually. Each doll commemorates the Tokyo Olympics with the emblem and the iconic Olympic rings on the back.
