Comments from the audience

•Kachu (Japanese armor) is a relic of the Samurai era; a time of social upheaval and political intrigue. The lecture helped me very much in understanding the history and the craftwork of these magnificent pieces of historical art. (Male 60)

•It was very interesting to learn that the armor worn by the samurai over the centuries was incredibly varied and many different kinds of shapes and forms were used for crests, which identified the wearer and reflected his interests and his religious leanings. I think It is important to that we have skilled armorers like Mr Morisaki. (Female 21 ~ 40)

•The lecture was very interesting. Mr. Morisaki's efforts are impressive. I wish the best for him (Male 60)

•I really enjoyed learning about the styles of armor and helmets, which were incredibly varied throughout history. I was very surprised to learn that restoring and making Japanese armor requires many varied, skilled techniques and tremendous effort. (Male 21 ~ 40)

•I was deeply impressed. I will go to a book store and purchase some books about Samurai Armor.(Male 60)
