A barrel-shaped cuirass, jointed at the sides. What it lacks in aesthetic appeal, it more than makes up for with its toughness.
Part of a set of armor worn by the heads of noble families appointed as military governors by the shogunate. Despite the large number of retainers supplanting their lords to rise to the rank of daimyo, the principal governors remained in a class of their own when it came to power.
