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.

Cranes and pine trees are considered sacred in Japanese culture. They symbolize longevity and the everlasting devotion of a couple. The color of pine tree is evergreen and when the needles finally fall to the ground, each falls as a pair.

This is a peaceful but powerful scene, symbolizing the prosperity over a happy, united family. Each of the cranes was executed beautifully by the artist. The artist, who obviously spent whatever he could offer, signed on both vases.

The glaze on the...

This is a Japanese silk obi with a painting of men transporting lumber down the river. It is a scene that became obsolete as new technologies, such as trains, trucks and the creations of dams, developed. It is hand painted on silk with an artist’s signature and seal. We will bring more photos once the obi is flattened from the Nagoya style obi – currently, this obi is being worked on (hand sewn) by a professional.

This is an old Japanese silk obi. The style of the obi is called Chu-ya (day and night) obi – it’s made with two different fabrics sewn together. As the name suggests, two sides of the obi can be worn for totally different social functions. Both sides are absolutely beautiful on this obi.

The front side of this obi is subtle but quite tasteful. As for the black side, it is ‘Nyogen’ silk fabric from China; there are two characters, ‘nyo gen’ and their distinctive red logo (p...

This set of dolls was made for Japanese Boy’s Day. It comes from one of Japanese folklores, Peach Boy, Momotaro. Momo is translated to peach and Taro (ta-ro-o) is a common name for boys. The writing on the label (on the box) is "Wakana Ningyo", the date of purchase is the 10th years of Taisho (1921), 92 years ago! The condition is excellent (old but new condition) - the set appears newer than it actually is in the photos. Momotaro's fan (made out of one piece of paper) is bent down (as sh...
