In ancient Japan, the samurai warriors were a living symbol of honor. Each samurai had their own specially made armor, and symbol to fly high on their flags while going into battle, as well as a katana to fight by their side. The Sengoku Samurai each have their own unique looking armor, that is tied to their name- no matter how many centuries have passed. These figures capture the beauty of the yoroi armor, as well as the flags and katana that these samurai fought along side with. Even on a much smaller scale these figures emulate the details and time that has gone into the making of the yoroi armor.
About the Samurai:
Born as the third son of Imagawa Ujichika, he was originally not heir to the leadership of the Imagawa clan. Though, due to his Father's sudden death, he got into a feud with his older half-brother about the succession of the role of the leader. The family split, and as the other side was defeated, he managed to gain the leadership of the Imagawa clan. After marrying Takeda Shingen's sister, he managed to make an alliance with the Takeda clan. He was thrown into many battles, which led to his death in a battle against Oda's army.
