A refined hood woven from white silk, it is not only elegant and strong, but is also said to harbour great spiritual power. This clothing is modelled after that of a famous strategist and was worn by Kuroda Kanbei when he served Toyotomi Hideyoshi as his strategist. Kanbei came to serve under Hideyoshi during the Oda army's attack on the Chugoku region, and used his talent for strategy to support Hideyoshi's rule over Japan. Though known as a Christian warlord at one point, Kanbei would later in life shave his head and take the name of losui. His often complicated life led to him taking an adaptable approach towards the world, which can be seen in his Japanese clothing featuring foreign influences.
An imported collared shirt, combined with a formal over garment that contains the Kuroda family's "fujitomoe" crest, woven in golden thread on its back.
Silk pants boasting folds embroidered in gold thread, conjuring up the perfect image of an ancient master strategist who served under the emperor of Japan.
Low shoes based on the footwear of foreign missionaries, they were made to suit Japanese clothing, and provided less of a strain on the legs than traditional straw sandals.
