A look at the spiritual side of samurai arms and armour. Text by Antony Cummins. It is said that Tokugawa Ieyasu – the shogun of all Japan – once turned to his retainers while attending the theatre and proclaimed that it was almost time to prepare the bamboo for the banner poles.   The Samurai Museum is on a side street from the main streets of Shinjuku and a little tricky to find. But it was worth the search - although the museum is not huge, it still boasts a fair number of genuine historical armour and weapons as well as replicas, all giving you an excellent feel of the type of arms used during the feudal period.4/5(K).
