- Item #: B019

The Goryō were the spirits of samurai warriors and nobles who died horrible, agonizing deaths and returned to haunt their enemies as dreadful ghosts of vengeance called Gonryō. Some samurai would dress as Goryō to invoke fear into the hearts of their enemy as they marched across their lands. Believing there where vengeful spirits approaching, some ashigaru would rather run and hide, than face the otherworldly wrath of the Gonryō. One example of a goryō was a Sugawara Michizane, who's vengeful spirit was soothed by venerating it to deity status and became known as Tenjin (Shinto Kami of Scholarship).
This fine authentic reproduction of traditional Japanese yokohagi Okegawa ni-mai dô samurai armor is handmade by the Iron Mountain Armory. The momonari (peach shape) kabuto was designed at the end of Sengoku era to help deflect musket fire. Features actual buffalo horns.
