It's supernatural and the main protagonist has white hair. He's a guy, wearing traditional clothes, and the setting is old. He solves mysteries in towns - mostly spirits. In one episode they went to a doll maker's house.
What anime is this?

    Although the protagonist does not wear traditional Japanese clothes.... Maybe Mushishi? – JNat Sep 12 '13 at 9:40

    @nikita It's more recent than Mushishi? Did it come out this season, maybe? When did you first see it? – JNat Sep 12 '13 at 9:46

    Is it Mononoke? I don't remember a doll maker arc in that show though. – Jon Lin Sep 12 '13 at 18:47

    Can you give me/us some more details like: is his hair long or short? Color of his eyes? It will make search easier. ^^ – stoned panda Sep 13 '13 at 9:33

I believe it's Tactics. Episode 5 features a doll-maker, and seems to fit your description perfectly.

I think you are talking about Ginko from Mushishi.

Ginko-Mushishi

  • He is not, check out the comment thread below the OP. – JNat Sep 13 '13 at 21:24

I think the anime is Inuyasha. Here's the blurb from MAL.

Higurashi Kagome, after being pulled down a well by a demon, finds herself in Feudal Japan, where she learns that a powerful jewel has been reborn inside her body. After the jewel shatters in an attempt to retrieve it from one of the many demons who was after its power, Kagome must join forces with the half-demon Inu Yasha (also after the jewel's power) to track down the shards of the jewel before its power falls into the wrong hands.
