Kasshiki is a name given to a young boy who looks after meals at Zen temples. Part commoner and part Buddhist monk, he often excels in the performing arts. The kasshiki mask is characterized by bangs that are cut in the shape of a ginkgo leaf or extend straight across the forehead. The youthful face is delicately tinted and often reveals dimples. Its expression varies from headstrong to cute and lovable, bringing a range of emotions to the performance.
