Find out what’s behind the mask at Shuhei Okawara's funky store in old Tokyo: Omote is found along a quiet, nostalgia-oozing shopping street in Sumida's Kyojima and has become a favourite among the city's actors, mask-makers and headwear enthusiasts. The selection ranges from the usual to the fetishistic, including Venetian-style masks, medical gear, Hyottoko (Japanese-style clown masks), and items with animal motifs, with prices ranging from a few thousand yen to the hundreds of thousands.
