Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni is located on Japan’s main island of Honshu and is home to the only USMC F/A-18 Hornet fighter squadron stationed overseas. Kokeshi dolls, originally crafted as toys for farmer’s children in Northern Honshu, have been popular on the island for over 150 years and are now an established souvenir for tourists traveling throughout Japan. Our charm is a .925 sterling silver Kokeshi doll wearing a blue kimono decorated with pink cherry blossoms. “Iwakuni” is inscribed on the doll’s back.
This .925 silver charm is part of our military jewelry collection, which features more items that honor our armed forces. Browse our website to share your unique story.
