A Little Samurai Armor in the Living Room

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

May 5 is Children's Day. Since my wife and I have, well, children, we get out a set of miniature "yoroi" (armor) so that our sons grow up healthy and strong.

I've posted about this before, so forgive me if you read that previous post! But, I absolutely love getting out this miniature set of samurai armor every year and setting it up. It's all quite intricate, and the armor actually comes with a feather duster to clean it and white gloves you are supposed to wear while setting it up.


Love the gloves. Love the feather duster. Love the armor.
