Honmaku (本幕)

Honmaku, or “full curtain,” refers to when the curtain is raised completely with two poles from the inside. Costumed performers typically enter the stage during the Honmaku. Mountains, hills and buildings are often represented, and the props placed above the stage are also brought on stage at this time. Performers and props are said to “enter” or “be placed with the Honmaku.”
