Shin guards consisting of small plates bound together like a bamboo blind. Wearing them with thin leather socks allows them to easily form to the shape of the wearer's shins. Part of a traditional armour set said to have belonged to Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who, after starting out as a poor villager, ascended to the position of shogun and eventually came to rule over the entire country, earning himself the title of the Unifier of the Warring States. Hideyoshi, who had previously served as a retainer to the Oda clan, dominated the competition for the top position after Nobunaga's death, and his victory led to him being called the Child of the Sun. The full set of armour includes an extravagant tabard beloved of Hideyoshi.
