In the past, people used onigawara with scary faces as a charm against evil, with the hope of getting demons on their side to protect their houses. Nowadays, interior onigawara are created with gentle expressions on their faces.
This onigawara iemori with a gentle expression and a happy smile was designed and created by oni-shi craftsman Atsushi Yamashita. Good fortune and happiness will come to those who smile, just like this demon with a magnificent smile. The expression on the face, born from the wish to spend the year smiling, may even overturn the notion that demons are scary. The 12 beads on either side of the mask signify one year, representing the 12 months.
We hope that more smiling onigawara like this product will be decorated on people’s homes.
