Note: Refers to a type of Japanese body armor designed primarily for use by archers on horseback and used mainly from the 9th century to the 16th century. It is characterized by being lightweight compared to other styles of armor and constructed of multiple pieces that were held together by brightly colored cord or ribboons. In addition to its practical function, it was valued for decorative and ritualistic reasons, and was often donated to Shinto shrines upon the death of its owner.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar een type persoonlijke wapenrusting in Japan, voornamelijk bedoeld voor gebruik door boogschutters te paard en hoofdzakelijk gebruikt van de 9e tot de 16e eeuw. De yoroi was licht van gewicht vergeleken met andere wapenrustingen en opgebouwd uit meerdere stukken die bij elkaar werden gehouden door felgekleurde koorden of linten. De yoroi werd gewaardeerd om zijn praktische functie, maar ook om decoratieve en rituele redenen. Na de dood van de eigenaar werd het kledingstuk vaak geschonken aan een Shinto heiligdom.
