Our artisan Taisho katchû-shi (Japanese armor smiths) have crafted this simple yet elegant tosei style okegawa yoroi in honor of Fudō Myō-ō. According to Japanese mythology, he was the fierce form of the Buddha Vairocana, and the most important of the Myō-ō, the warlike and wrathful deities. The 5 piece, handcrafted Hineno Zunari Bachi kabuto (helmet) has a prominent maedate (crest) and bears the Sanskrit name to invoke Dainichi Nyorai (大日) “The Great Sun”. These flames of fire-represent the purification of one’s mind by burning away all material desires.
Keeping with taisho crafting tradition this Fudō Myō-ō samurai yoroi is fully handcrafted with a tosei okegawa dō (chest armor) and Bishamon suneate (shin guards) and completed with the Fudō Myō-ō Sanskrit maedate. This particular yoroi features a traditionally crafted 3 plate Hineno Zunari Bachi Kabuto (helmet), with Kiritsuke Iyozane (simulated scale) shikoro (neck-plate), sode (shoulder guards) and kusazari (defensive skirt plating). This tosei design style was very common in the late Muromachi – Sengoku period. Like all of our suits, our Taisho katchû-shi are happy to customize the style of kabuto, menpō (mask) and suneate (shin guards), as well as odoshi (paint color and finish).
