Samurai Armour Grand Exhibition Tokyo

Video from a comprehensive exhibition featuring samurai arms and armour. Hosted by Marutake Sangyo – the world’s famous samurai armour manufacturer from Kagoshima Prefecture – in January 2010.

The company makes samurai sets for drama series, movies, and also for museums. The website in the video is their official global distributor.

Not sure why common people would buy a samurai armour though… just curious. Bet it’s not cheap so it’s not regular cosplay stuff.
