Was Sanada Nobushige, also known as Sanada Yukimura, the greatest warrior of Japan's civil war period? Yes, he did defend the castle of Osaka against later shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu but was he really as unique as legends have him to be? Perhaps we will never know but one thing is certain: his red armor with the six coins that were the crest of his family on the helmet is familiar to all Japanese, and this is why it was turned into the Samurai Helmet Bottle Cap Sanada Yukimura, allowing you to have one miniature of it in your home!
The Samurai Helmet Bottle Cap Sanada Yukimura has been made in Saitama Prefecture, north of Tokyo, by craftspeople who specialize in making actual samurai armor. Measuring 14 x 14 x 9 cm (5.5 x 5.5 x 3.5"), its materials include brass, aluminum, and cords braided in the way those of real samurai kabuto (helmets) were, and it can be used as a cap for almost any type of bottle. It also comes with a display stand so you can also use it as an Japanese cultural ornament!
