Golden Gourd Waistguard Description
Armour worn by Tokichiro. The thigh protectors that hang down from the waist are emblazoned with a golden sun. These decorations are an indication of Tokichiro's belief that the sunrise brought with it his many successes in life.
Gourds have been grown as crops since ancient times. As it was believed that their seeds would sprout without fail, they became a symbol of success, family prosperity and fertility. It is for this reason that Tokichiro uses the image of a gourd on his standard.
