Craftsman is all done by hand one by one. Noh mask is authentic. There is nothing exactly the same. We can not mass production. Material is using Japanese Zelkova serrata.

The masks are not "carve", it is said he "beat". It is facing the masks of "implantation the heart."

We think Noh mask which conceals the emotions, and it very interesting subject. You can know the joy out of work, called "watch while imagining the state of the carver."

Please enjoy the traditional Japanese arts world, Noh.

What's Manbi?

Eyes and mouth produce "a flattery smile". With this name from this.

Manbi is the companion of "KO-OMOTE". Modeling of Ko-Omote and Manbi is a small difference, but have a different atmosphere.

Manbi face devised by Gensuke (The third generation of family Deme of Echizen. His real name is Hidemitsu).

Compared with the Ko-Omote, has plump cheeks and long and narrow eyes large. And the mouth is glitz to feel the sex appeal.

Ko-Omote hair is drawn in three straight hair. On the other hand, Manbi hair is drawn in three disheveled hair. It is express more humanness and most sex appeal.

That is, Manbi is "Very beautiful and luster-ish atmosphere and a little flashy" Ko-Omote.
