The Sakura Ningyo, Cherry Doll, was first orginated from the French technique and is made to suggest a dancing posture. Many of these dolls have characteristics resembling characters in dancing scenes or dramatic performances on the stage.

This type of doll is one of the easier dolls to make and why it is so popular with so many people. There are illustrations and instructions for making 3 kinds of Sakura dolls: Geisha, Madame Butterfly and Issun Hoshi.
