Golden Gourd Cuirass Description
Armor worn by Tokichiro. This cuirass is formed from multiple black lacquered iron plates strung together, with a gold lacquer depiction of the sun at its heart. The decoration is an indication of Tokichiro's belief that the sunrise brought with it his many successes in life.
Gourds have been grown as crops since ancinet times. As it was believed that their seeds would sprout without fail, they became a symbol of success, fertility, and family prosperity. It is for this reason that Tokichiro used the image of a gourd on his standard.
