A legendary studded helmet design consisting of ten layers of iron sheet garnished with an imposing silver crest. The frontal face has a counterpart pattern to the do, flanked by ear—like projections known as "fukikaeshi." There are also flaps to protect the cheeks. This is heavy armour said to have belonged to the Heike clan.
This chest armour affords excellent defence despite its light weight thanks to its scale—like construction with multiple scale iron and leather plates. The sleeve sections protruding from the shoulders over the upper arms give protection from arrows and other projectiles.
Kote consisting of the single gauntlet worn on the left hand by archers to aid in close—quarters combat, and a leather glove called a "yugake" to protect the fingers while drawing the bow.
Knee guards featuring the same scale construction as the do, to prevent them from hindering movement. For infantry, such heavy armour would strain the shoulders and back, but it is designed for cavalry, such that the saddle bears much of the weight.
Greaves consisting of cylindrical leather boots on top of which is attached a thin iron plate, fixed in place with cord.
