"The Moonlight Mask Lantern" was made in celebration for the 60th anniversary since it was put on the air.  This lantern was displayed as part of the Nebuta festival held in Aomori last August.


Combining the icon of TV series hero with traditional Japanese culture, "The Moonlight Mask Lantern" is the work of professional lantern craftsman Ryuho Tatsuta, which became the center of talk and attention at the Nebuta Festival held in Aomori.


"The Moonlight Mask Lantern" is a mid-sized lantern, with length of 3.6m, width 2.5m, height 2.4m, which reenacted the famous classic scene of "The Moonlight Mask" facing off with his mortal enemy "Satan's Claw".  At the Tokyo Comic Con 2018, the lantern will be placed lower than when it was on display at the Aomori Nebuta Festival.
