This is a two-piece cuirass armor with light blue sparse lacing. The kusazuri tassets that protect the upper thighs have bear fur on its hem. It has been stored in a box with a battle flag and handed down in the Ono family, the former feudal vassals of the Yanagawa domain. The helmet for this armor also exists but it is kept in another possession.
