Jinmaku (陣幕 Jin-no-maku) also known as gunmaku (軍幕) are “military curtain” which are used to set up military encampment used throughout the Sengoku era (1333 – 1603) and Edo era (1603- 1868). Today the jinmaku are used for mostly symbolism and theater, in ancient times they were suspended by poles and stretched around military encampments. These gunmaku military curtains would provide privacy and some safety for the Daimyo, Taisho and samurai along with protection from the wind while sleeping. To counter the wind blowing against the jinmaku like boat sails, 9 monomi (eye holes) are made at even intervals according to the varying total lengths of a curtain.
