This playing card set is inspired by the Japanese Noh plays (能楽) and its mask culture. Kasa (傘) means "umbrella" in Japanese, and it is the main inspiration of the card back.
Noh or 能 is a Sino-Japanese word for "skill" or "talent". It plays a very major part of the classical Japanese musical drama that has been performed since the 14th century. Usually, the performers dress in traditional costume and wear strange-looking masks during the performance. The box art features 2 different masks depends on the deck: The white mask is a fox mask and the red one is a Tengu(天狗) mask.
