This is a small samurai armor (yoroi) made to display for Boy’s Day in Japan. It may be a little old fashion for some but as always the tradition, the spirit of the samurai will not die in the near future. You could see it today in the streets on Boy’s Day. The statues of Colonel Sanders at KFC being dressed in paper made Yoroi armor. By displaying a set like this, it will hopefully inspire boys in their manliness, bravery, discipline and honor codes that come with it.
