Odawara Castle Exhibition (July 8-September 24, 2017)
The Association for the Research and Preservation of Japanese Helmets and Armor helped with the organization of the excellent samurai armor exhibition that started on July 8th and that will run until September 24th. The exhibition takes place in two locations close to each other: in the tower of Odawara Castle and in a building on the same square. Many of the pieces are from the Azuchi-Momoyama period or older. An excellent catalog, with pictures of the 49 pieces on display, is also available in the museum shop. All current members of the Western branch of the association will get a free catalog to celebrate the establishment of the branch in April!
