What is Samurai Helmet (Japanese: Kabutokazari)?

In the Edo period, the armor and helmets (Kabuto) of the samurai were used as a symbol of strength and a talisman to protect boys from harm. Even today, in Japan, it is customary to decorate the house with armor and helmets and to celebrate May 5, known as "Children's Day", with the family. Armor and helmets are adorned with amulets to protect the child, in the hope that he will escape illness and accidents, and become strong and healthy.

The Kabuto Kazari is an interior decoration with a strong meaning, offered to children and grandchildren.
