追加情報                                  Additional Information The Zunari kabuto, as described here, is a simple, five-plate design.
  There are also 2 types of Zunari Kabuto made from 3 plates: these two types are called Hineno and Etchû kabuto. They are almost identical except for one key difference: the central plate in the Hineno Kabuto goes under the visor; in the Etchû Kabuto, it overlaps the visor.
歴史 History This style (Zunari Kabuto) has been in demand since the 16th century until the 19th century, because the light and the same time offered a good protection! Obviously the simple construction was very successful with the Daimyôs in order to be able to supply their army in a quick way.
  The Hineno Zunari Kabuto model was designed by a gunsmith named Hineno Oribe-no-Kami, who was very popular in the second half of 16th century. The samurai preferred this model in battles.
  According to lore, the Wakidate, since they are so large, were mistaken for a kata Sashimono- a flag inserted into the back of an armour and thus became a target of cannon fire.
