Edo period armor

Recommended Posts

This is an Edo period armor with Hineno style Kabuto with Tehen. This armor is not designed to have Sode , the Reed mats serve to keep rain out of the armor. There is a purse under the haidate.

Hi Gary,

 

Can you explain what you mean by this?

I think we have all seen some purses attached to the Do on the outside. I am sorry when I said Haidate , on the front Kasazari there is a purse sewn into the fabric underneath. It's the same frabic as used in the rest of the armor so it's original. When you pull it up the opening is upright so it hangs upside down. The closure is secured by buttons.
