The cold, hard truth of being a Super Dollfie fan who does not live in Japan is that many of us will never be able to make the pilgrimage with our beloved dolls to Tenshi no Sato: the headquarters for Volks Super Dollfie. Once we had our Sumika in LA to help ease that pain but now that Volks USA has shut down their physical shop, there’s no other option but to live online and plan to someday visit Japan or attend a US Dolpa. Thankfully we have the assistance and photography skill of people like Ksusha to help ease our troubled minds. This will be a four part series and will be published in the coming weeks. Thank you!
Ksusha was kind enough to allow me to repost images of her trips to Tenshi no Sato. Some things may have changed at the locale since then (like recent repairs to the koi pond!) but the essence and experience remains the same. I will be updating this site with a permanent ‘Tour of Tenshi no Sato” soon! Please look forward to it!
Please find your favorite soothing beverage- tea, coffee or something else delightful and enjoy these peaceful images. It is impossible not to feel at ease with the beauty and happiness found at Tenshi no Sato.
“Mother SD”. She is the guardian spirit and where all Super Dollfies are born.
Stands and seats are, as a courtesy, readily available for anyone wishing to photographs their dolls.

The baskets are also available for owners wishing to tour Tenshi no Sato with their beloved SD.
…as well as carriages for people with multiple or larger dolls!
A lovely owner posing with her doll. These furniture, portraits and surroundings evoke elegance and beauty.
Some owners prefer to sit at the long, beautiful natural wood table. Comfortable recliners and chairs are available for owners to visit and share their beautiful dolls. In the background is Mother SD watching over the beautiful space.
The meeting of many beautiful dolls is inevitable.
At the cafe, dolls may be the focus but owners also enjoy special Tenshi no Sato refreshment of tea and cakes.
A perfect way to end a visit to the main building!
Outside the gardens await~
As you can see the windows from the cafe and beautiful main room of Tenshi no Sato look out upon a gorgeously maintained garden and grounds.
This is the historic tea room located on the Tenshi no Sato grounds. It is maintained in pristine condition according with its construction.
Beautiful dolls ready for their photoshoot in the garden. ❤
This is the official work building for Tenshi no Sato! The ‘Mother SD Sanctum” is located on the left hand side and the cafe is on the right.
I leave you with the fountain used for purification purposes in the most beautiful garden. Please look forward to my next post (also brough to you by Ksusha) of the most amazing fall colors!
As stated above all images are property of Ksusha and her husband. I have only featured their Tenshi no Sato portion of their Japan trip on Tenshinomon.com but you should absolutely visit their blog to learn more about their amazing travels to japan. A huge thank you to both of them because without their efforts and permissions this post would not have been possible. Thank you!
