The Tokugawa Clan Samurai Armor is a traditional tosei okegawa yoroi set, named for the Tokugawa Clan. The clan represented a powerful Daimyo Family descended from Emperor Seiwa (850-880 AD), in the early days of Imperial Japan. The origins of the Tokugawa Clan are shrouded in mystery. They had begun their ascent to power by 1567 A.D. The clan grew vastly during the Warring States Period, both in the samurai they commanded, and the lands they controlled. Members of the clan ruled Japan as Shoguns, or military commanders, from 1603 to 1867. Such was the influence and power of this clan that some historians actually refer to the “The Edo Period” as “The Tokugawa Era” instead. The Tokugawa were loyally served by many noble families. They include the Li Clan and the Honda Clan. This fine armour is a testimony to the Tokugawa.
