Looking for a bitsu (Armor storage box)

Recommended Posts

A hitsu is a chest. 

A Komé-bitsu is a rice tub

A Naga-bitsu is a long chest.

A Yoroi-bitsu is a single armour box/chest.

(See also Ikka-bitsu)


As you can see the h tends to change to a b sound when something comes in front of it.


Have you thought of making one, at least until you source an old one? Paint it black, place a cloth over it, then Katchū, and ‘Hora!’

Hi Ciro,


could become difficult to get an old one in Europe. I tried it a while ago and ended up at Yahoo. From time to time nice pieces popping up there....
