Paint your own Kagura mask at Kobayashi Kobo
Through this activity, you can experience painting a mask for Iwami kagura (Traditional dance performance).
You will be given a white plain mask made in the traditional way, using locally-made Japanese paper called Sekishu Washi (UNESCO Important Intangible Cultural Herritage) and paint it to make your very own Kagura mask.
It takes about an hour and half and you can take your mask home with you afterwards.
Place it at the entrance door or hang it on the wall and it will bring your household safety and good luck or ward off any evils, depending on the design of the masks.
You can choose your mask from 4 options (two are Gods and two are demons).
You can book online via the official website.
