Tosa Governor's Greaves Description
Shin guards in the lyo style made from animal pelts and interlocking metal bands fastened with cords. This design allows for greater maneuverability than greaves employing iron plates. This traditional light armor was owned by Chosokabe Morichika, son of Motochika of Tosa (present-day Kochi prefecture), a man of extraordinary abilities who gained control of the island of Shikoku. Morichika sided with Ishida Mitsunari in the Battle of Sekigahara, but lost both his land and rank after Ishida's defeat. He then lived in Kyoto as a ronin, or masterless samurai, and served the Toyotomi household when he heard they were seeking swords for hire. Morichika was dispatched to Osaka Castle and fought valiantly in a desperate attempt to regain his former position, but ultimately failed and met defeat in battle.
