Sakakibara Yasumasa Gashira Armor was crafted in honor of Sakakibara Yasumasa (1548 – 1606) who was a Daimyo of the late Sengoku Period through to early Edo Period. Yasumasa was the Tokugawa Clan’s foremost military commander and considered to be one of four of the most fiercely loyal vassals of the Tokugawa Clan. Yasumasa, along with his three other Daimyo, were known as “The Four Guardian Kings” or “The Guardians of the Four Horizons”, such was their prowess and renown. Crafted with multiple odoshi (lace) colors and crowned by a tall maedate (helmet crest), this impressive suit is a grand testimony to the great warlord.
Crafted with a hachi zunari kabuto (stylized helmet) and an Byo Toji Yokohagi Okegawa Do, this yoroi features kebiki-odoshi style lacing (also referred to as “full lacing”) on the sode and kusazari, and is embellished with byo-toji (riveting).

The armor is beautifully made. I ordered the Gashira quality in crimson suna with blue, black and white lace and accent colors. It’s a stunning look. The wife even likes it! Shipment came in a timely manner and every piece was perfect. The fit is right on, and it look great set up on it’s wooden frame. If I could I’d wear it to the grocery store, but alas I live in the US, folks just wouldn’t get it.
The armor looks and feels great. I am like the quality overall but the crest is a little smaller then the 1 in the picture. Other than that I am happy.
Better than the picture! I love it!
