Japan's passage from the feudal period of the samurai to the modern, industrial age didn't happen overnight: it was a lengthy procedure and there were few people as instrumental to it as Sakamoto Ryoma from Kochi, in the island of Shikoku. To the Japanese, Ryoma is a hero and among the founding fathers of modern Japan. So with this Kimono Wine Bottle Cover Sakamoto Ryoma, you have the chance to have him always at your dinner table, adorning your wine or liquor bottles.
Made of real kimono-style fabric, this montsuki (kimono top) and hakama (pleated trousers) outfit will fit most regular wine bottles and transform them into a samurai of the Bakumatsu period, the time when Sakamoto Ryoma did most of the negotiation work that led to the fall of the shogun, the restoration of the emperor, and the birth of Japan as we know it. It even includes a pair of swords and the Ryoma house kamon (crest) for that extra touch of authenticity! Add a little history on your table with this unique decoration piece!
