There are many factors that have effects on facial recognition. We used adopted four kinds of "Noh" masks, "Waraijou", "Daikasshiki", "Shakumi", "Douji", to investigate the effects on facial recognition of changes in the angle of the view of the masks. This study investigated two points: the relation between the angle of the face of the "Noh" masks and the selection of emotional categories on facial recognition; and changes of impressions of the Noh Mask due to changes in the angle of the mask. The results of ANOVA showed statistically significant differences in conditions of the angle and the kind of "Noh" masks. The selection of emotional categories and the changes of impression on each "Noh" mask depend not only on the angle, but the combination of the kinds and the angle of view of the "Noh" mask.
