A pointed helmet with wing—like decorations adorning the sides. This Tosei—gusoku armour was owned by Tokugawa loyalist Torii Mototada, highly acclaimed as being a warrior among warriors in Mikawa. Since he was a hostage of the Imagawa clan, Mototada served Tokugawa leyasu, and fought against the likes of the Asai, Asakura, and Takeda clans on the road to unifying Mikawa. In a battle with the Hojo clan where leyasu was attacked from behind by the enemy, Mototada was able to drive them back with only a small contingent of troops. He remained loyal to leyasu until his dying days, and could always be seen wearing the same armour on the battlefield.
Double—plated upper body armour made by binding small scales with black thread, and featuring classic ornamentation on the sleeves which is designed to strike fear into opponents.
Gauntlets made from sheets of iron, making them simple but highly practical.
Waist and thigh protection made by layering small "kusazuri" scales on the "haidate" emblazoned with the Toriikasa family crest.
Greaves made by stitching iron plates with holes in them together.
