Yatagarasu Headband Description
Light armor for the head made as lightweight as possible so as not to inhibit marksmanship. At first glance, it looks like a simple piece of cloth, but it conceals an iron plate that protects the forehead. This set of light armor was worn by Saika Magoichi, head of the Saika clan, who were a mercenary force based in the Kishu region.
They were hired by various feudal lords throughout Japan to fight in numerous battles, which they often won. Magoichi was the name passed down from generation to generation to the head of the Suzuki family who controlled the Saika clan. Suzuki Magoichi, who was active during the Shokuho Period, is particularly famous for causing trouble for the Oda army, thanks to his gift with firearms.
