Uwajima Ushioni Papier-Mache

YOSHIWO

Ushioni are lucky interior goods that bring good fortune and exorcise evil spirits.

The ushioni is an essential part of festivals in the Uwajima region and features a long neck with a devil's mask on a 5 meter body of bamboo. It is thought to exorcise evil spirits so it is often given traditionally to newlyweds or to be displayed in a newly constructed home. Wall mounted ushioni or small handmade "ushioni couples" are crafted traditionally by store called Yoshioshouten. Their lovely bright red color is said to purge evil spirits so it is also given as a gift to celebrate long life on a person's 60th birthday.
