Koshrae: Hoso-dachi-ken-koshirae that has gold-hiramaki-e saya with shell inlays of ho- birds, kiku-mon (Chrysanthemum) crests and metal fittings with kiri-mon (Pawlonia). The kiku-mon and the kiri-mon was exclusively used by the Imperial Household. The mythical ho-bird (Phoenix) only appears in the Pawlonia wood during the coronation of a new Emperor and, as a result, was said to impart good fortune on that reign. The saya was made by Akatsuka Jitoku (1871 – 1936) a member of the Imperial Art Academy. It is said that this tachi was presented to Kaiser Wilhelm II by the Crown Prince Hirohito during his Europe visit in the Netherlands on Jun 1921. The history of the sword has to be studied. A similar tachi was presented to the British Royal family in 1915 in celebrating the coronation of Emperror Taisho. Jitoko Akatsuka Birth: 1871 Death: 1936 Famous gold lacquer artist.
