|In ancient times when people gathered and formed a village, the first thing they did was to build a shrine or temple.
Talented carvers would then make masks and dedicate them to the God. As a result, all across Japan, there are many variations of masks.
Each mask has a story or a legend that reveals the history of that village. People believed that wearing a mask would enable the wearer to ask God to descend upon their village and bestow supernatural powers on the performer.
