One of the Naruto manga series’ long-running mysteries has finally been revealed. Patrons who attended Tokyo’s Naruto Art Exhibition were able to see the full face of Kakashi Hatake, but only if they bought a copy of Official Guestbook Shinden Fū no Sho.

Anime News Network stopped by the exhibition on its opening day and purchased the book, uploading an image of ninja’s face to their site for all to see.

Kakashi never fully uncovered his face during the series, only pulling down part of the covering to reveal his sharingan whenever necessary.

The Naruto Art Exhibition is open April 25th through June 28th before moving to Osaka from July 18th through September 27th. Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto has provided new artwork to accompany models and other displays that delve further into his popular comic.
