The Japanese Samurai Armour Miyahara is an impressive armour.
That's the best way to describe it. Details are truly beautiful, a yoroi to cherish and made according to the old Japanese tradition. Has a very powerful appearance, as the Japanese would say.

The armour is from a village called Mihara, where it has been for decades. It does not happen often that one parts with it. The majority of the Japanese still consider armour as something sacred. You will often see them in temples and at company offices.

This armour has been worn for a few occasions, which leaves some signs of wear, as it is supposed to, in my opinion. In Japan, the samurai are celebrated every year. The colours of this armour are truly beautiful. The kabuto really makes the difference, beautiful in every detail. Especially suitable for your home or dojo.

Of course it comes with the stand and the wooden weapon chest.
