Eboshi - KANMURI (with original Box)
Tohoji Kyojo Bihin, Kyojo-cho Senyo (Shiga-ken Tohoji Temple, Chief's Kanmuri)

One type of head dress worn by Shinto priests (shinshoku) during ritual ceremonies. Originally a headdress worn to indicate a man who had passed his "coming of age" ceremony (genpuku), the eboshi evolved into heavily lacquered and other various formalized types from the late Heian period; from the early modern period it was rarely worn outside of ritual occasions. Shinto vestments include three types, "formal vestments" (seiso), "ritual vestments" (reiso­), and "ordinary vestments" (joso); of these, the eboshi is worn by male priests as part of the class of "ordinary vestments" which includes the robes called Kariginu and joe.

The priest headgear may be either the black lacquered-silk eboshi, for less formal attire, or the more elaborate KANMURI (Crown) as represented here, worn with the saifuku costume.
