It's a little pricey, but t is no better/safer way to go. This comes from the kura (storehouse) of an old samurai family named Kusaka that are located in Miyagi Prefecture. We are in the process of liquidating their storehouses (they have 2) which many items date from the time the family were still samurai to WWII, when the head of the household served in the Imperial Japanese Army as a Military Police officer (kempeitai). It's safe to say most items we are listing date from Edo era to WWII. All items I list are guaranteed 100% to be as stated. This is a rare chance to own items from an old samurai family (that come from the family directly). Please see our other auctions.
