1982

Omokage

Upon release of Hohoemi, Orient Industry received many opinions from customers.

Some include being relieved of personal concerns.

Through this, Orient Industry gained a new vision, to create a doll that would support people's hearts.

At the same time, the Ueno consultation room, now the Ueno Showroom, saw its opening, where potential customers received both product information as well as occasional counseling at times.

Omokage was named after a journal of a customer who had recently lost a dear person, with the concept of "a doll that will always stay with you forever", becoming the second product by Orient Industry as of 1982.

Storage was also considered in making limbs detachable, and with a latex skin and styrofoam urethane body, air cushions were not used as part of the product.

The skin was closer in replicating human skin compared to other dolls, along with the increased durability allowing users to place their entire weight on the doll without crushing it.

From this point onwards, latex became the material in the main product lines.
