Kamakura Tachi by John Lee


The Kamakura period (1185-1333) was a crucial period in the Japanese history. It is characterized by the first military government (shogunate) which originated in 1192 by Minamoto no Yoritomo. The name of this period is derived from the former seat of government, which was in the city of Kamakura (about 50 km southwest of Tokyo). Together with Armor (Yoroi) and combat knife (tanto) the Tachi was usually worn on the battlefield. The Kamakura Tachi John Lee puts on a deliberately simple design, and thus differs from replicas of later epochs, which were often richly decorated and served only for ceremonial purposes.
