Couple with traditional Devil, or Oni-masks. Devil masks serve two purposes; the first, to portray the devil and create disasters or cause the plague, and conversely they are used to ward off evil spirits (As Fierce God Style). Used in Noh, Kabuki, and in celebration. Often handed down from generation to generation.

Yabusame is a ceremony in which archers clad in the hunting outfit of medieval warriors shoot at three targets as they race by on horseback. Among the yabusame events held across Japan, the one that's best known takes place every year on September 16 at Tsurugaoka Hachiman Shrine in Kamakura.
