Children's Day (in Japanese, Kodomo no Hi) is one of Japan's national holidays and part of the consecutive holidays that make up Golden Week in early May. It's celebrated on May 5 and despite the name, it's mostly for families that have boys. The day is a way for parents to wish for their sons' happiness and success in life. Part of the celebration is putting up in a central place of the house a set of decorations evoking Japan's legendary warriors, the samurai. Decorations like the magnificent Children's Day Samurai Helmet Set.
Made up of a kabuto helmet from the Kamakura Period (12th-14th centuries), a bow with two arrows, and a tachi sword like that a samurai of those days would have hanging from his belt, the Children's Day Samurai Helmet Set is an amazing gift for your son and, at the same time, a tribute to Japan's historical past. And if you want to take it down until the next Kodomo no Hi, its marvelous gold and black dais is also the box where the pieces of the set can be safely stored!
