- HYOTTOKO -
Hyottoko (火男) is a comical Japanese character, portrayed through the use of a mask.
His mouth is puckered and skewed to one side.
The origin of the name comes from "fire" (火, hi) and "man" (男, otoko), because the character is blowing fire with a bamboo pipe, hence the shape of the mouth.
It is believed that such a hard working Hyottoko will bring prosperity to the family.
