Tōkanmuri (唐冠)

A kind of headgear. It is a black crown used for the roles of foreign nobles and demon gods in “Tsurukame”, “Kan’yokyu”, “Ukai”, and “Chōryō”. It is said to imitate an ancient Chinese crown, with the crown's skirt (back half) higher and larger than the front half, with horizontal, oval-shaped wings protruding from the left and right sides of the crown. There is a crown with a similar shape called suki-kammuri, which is used by male gods who perform a divine dance, as in “Takasago”. It is also called Tōkamuri or Tōkan.
