Books on Japan index

Iwami Kagura Mask index

Buy direct from the maker for the best price!!

All of these masks are made in Iwami of traditional materials, japanese paper, glue, ground shell, pigments etc. No two masks are the same. It can take up to 4 weeks to complete all the processes and layers that go into it. They are functional Kagura masks, but are also commonly used in houses to scare evil spirits away. Please contact me at ojisanjake ((at)) for prices, details, or with any enquiries. Click on any mask title for more details.
