JAPANESE BODY ARMOR [Yoroi-Kabuto]

The history of Japanese body armor is rather long and examples of this armor have appeared on mud dolls found in ancient graves. Japanese body armor was changed after guns were adopted and was used in their battles from the mid-sixteenth century. Before that time body armor was used in offensive applications and not only for the defensive; this armor was made of rather light weight materials and was fancy.
