Mask of a woman transformed into a demon after being heartbroken over the lost love of her husband. The hashihime mask is full of anger and sadness expressed in the deeply furrowed brow. The broad, open mouth and exposed gold teeth appear ready to let forth a curse, and the gold outline of the eyes indicate that the woman has already transformed into a demon. As with the deigan and ryū-nyo masks, the hashihime mask is used by the ryū-nyo, with the strong expression portraying the austere nature of the character.
