A crown featuring a fan—shaped horsehair "oikake" decoration to either side. This heavy armour belonged to Ashikaga Yoshiteru, the 13th shogun of the Muromachi Shogunate. Yoshiteru was a famous swordsman taught by Tsukahara Bokuden who sought to revive the shogunate, taking him into battle against the Miyoshi clan. He was killed before fulfilling his dream. This heavy armour was a treasure of the Ashikaga clan for many years, being passed down through the generations since Takauji. It has vivid, multi—coloured lacing. Using the very finest steel and high quality leather, it affords a level of protection that belies its old—fashioned, gaudy appearance.
A do covering the upper body that features a single plate design, with an arrow deflecting "imuke" arm piece on the left side only.
Kote of the "moro—gote" type, covering both the left and right arms, and designed more for close—quarters combat than archery.
Hizayoroi featuring red coloured lacing, this style of leg armour is suspended from the do and is also known as "kusazuri".
Greaves worn over the top of tabi and other leg and footwear. They are of a simple leather and single iron plate construction, but boast extravagant gold embellishments on the fastenings.
