ZIPANG from Samurai Collection

Enjoy dressing 1.8L Sake bottles with authentic Samurai armors

Famous general who built the Uesugi clan into a powerful house with his strong leadership

Kenshin Uesugi's childhood name was Torachiyo. He was named Kagetora Nagao after the coming-of-age ceremony. He fought against his elder brother Harukage in the year 1548, and by the mediation of the military advisor Sadazane Uesugi, Kenshin was appointed to head Nagao clan and became the lord of Kasugayama Castle. He fought battles in Hokuriku, Shinano and Kanto regions afterward, flying the navy blue flags with the design of the rising sun and the character "毘" drawn in white. A series of five battle between Shingen Takeda and Kenshin in the Sengoku period called the "Battle of Kawanakajima" is well known. In the year 1576, he made peace with the Honganji clan, terminated his alliance with Nobunaga Oda, cooperated with Motonari Mori of the Chugoku region and created a planned attack Nobunaga from the east and west. In September of 1577, Kenshin conquered Noto Nanao Castle which was under control of the Oda clan, then won the battle against Nobunaga's army at Kaga Tedori River.

ZIPANG has made a detailed miniature of the armor worn by the legendary Kenshin Uesugi, called "Bottle Armor." The "Maedate" front decoration is adorned with the deity Izuna-gongen. Silver "Kozane" plates are bound with navy threads and white stitches. This detail gives the piece of work a futuristic look. You can enjoy your favorite sake while remembering the heroic stories of men who fought during the Sengoku period.

Japanese food has been attracting attention as "Washoku," or traditional Japanese cuisine was recently added to the UNESCO world intangible heritage list. Our product blends two different internationally-respected “Made in Japan” items which are traditional Japanese armor and sake. This reasonably priced, small beautiful armor is perfect as a gift not only for Tango no Sekku (Children's Day) but also for congratulating on the birth of a baby or on a marriage, or for praying for prosperity. We strive to make replica armor that can be gifted for various life events.
