The 18th century in Japan was known as the Edo Period. It was peacetime in the land and samurais had to give up their swords to ensure peace will reign over Japan. Samurais who gave up their swords became commoners or hired security for the daimyos, the powerful feudal lords at that time. Since there were no wars, a gusoku or Japanese armor is used for ceremonies. Most often, gusoku armors that were designed with gold, silver, and iron with intricate symbols were the ceremonial armors of daimyos.

Gusoku armors had tiny built-in compartments in which the wearer can store some necessities. Listen to the curator of a Fierce Loyalty: A Samurai Complete exhibition of the Crow Museum of Asian Art.
