Kabuto, a decorative samurai helmet, is a memento to wish for healthy growth since ancient times.
In Japan, it is customary for male children to decorate their helmets and armor during the Dragon Boat Festival (May 5). The meaning is that helmets and armor are tools for samurai warriors to protect themselves. Decorating a boy's helmet and armor is a way to protect him from illness and accidents, and to help him overcome difficulties and grow up strong.
This helmet is decorated with a crescent moon.
It is the same design as the helmet worn by Date Masamune, one of Japan's most famous warlords of the Sengoku period.
This is a perfect gift for a birthday celebration, housewarming, etc., or as a keepsake for yourself.
