中将
This mask takes its name from the early Heian poet, Ariwara no Narihira. He was a man born of nobility and a lieutenant-general (chujo) of the fifth rank. He was also called “one of the six famous poets” in that period. This mask was modeled on him. It is used for the noblemen of Heike clan such as “Kiyotsune” and “Tadanori” in Noh plays
