Child Samurai Armor sets have been used throughout the history of Japan. Traditionally displayed inside the homes of the samurai warrior class, particularly during the holiday “Tango no Sekku“, which is celebrated on the 5th day of the 5th month (May 5th) of each year. Tango no Sekku is known as “Boy’s Festival”, but is now known as “Children’s day”. Traditionally the child armor would be worn by young boys of the samurai’s family, then displayed in their home.
