As an integral part of Japanese Noh theater, beautifully carved masks are worn by actors to indicate the character they are portraying. The crafting of masks as an art form reached a zenith during the 14th Century and they continue to be made today. The focus of this museum's collection centers on 50 authentic Noh masks with descriptions of how they were crafted. Information is provided in English as well as Japanese. Noh souvenirs are also sold here.
