One thing I'd never photographed before were the paintings on the walls. First the quadriptychs.
Each of the above had a few more paintings above or below them. Some are rather grotesque.
I don't recall seeing much English in the captions in the past. Here is a bit about the Mexican Masks.
Cousin Itt looks badass!
What follows is a Namahage called the Suneka.
Some traditional costumes.
Creation of the kanji for Oni.
Some homemade masks.
If Anpanman were a demon.
These homemade masks are also pretty cool. I particularly like the Krampus!
A pretty good likeness.
Some GeGeGe Goodies:
Monkeys battling Namazu the Earthshaker!
Someday, I may pick up some of these badges.
See you again someday, Oni Museum!!
