According to the document recorded in 1778, Tachibana Muneshige gave his shoulder guards to his vassal, Ono, at the military camp in Korea in 1592; and another vassal, Otabe, had noticed that his lord had no shoulder guards, and then, he gave his to his lord. These shoulder guards have been handed down in the Tachibana family, but it has a crest design of the Otabe family on the metal fittings. This authenticates the record.
