Shiroishi Castle Samurai Armor Dressing Experience(Miyagi Inbound DMO Association)

Shiroishijo Kacchukitsuke Taiken

Wear samurai armor and helmet replicas at Shiroishi Castle in Shiroishi, Miyagi Prefecture! Create memories with family, friends, and partner!

Ashigaru-san will dress you in armor modeled after famous military commanders (Katakura Kojuro Kagetsuna and Sanada Yukimura). The armor includes a helmet, body, and gauntlet, allowing you to feel as if you were a warlord from the period. After choosing and fitting your armor, you will be instructed on how to draw and hold your sword. You do not need to bring anything with you on the day, but please wear comfortable clothing entirely covering arms and legs (no skirts, tank tops etc.).

[*During the reconstruction of Shiroishi Castle until end of September 2022, the armor dressing experience will be held at the Katakura Family Bukeyashiki (Samurai Residence) (6-52 Nishimasuoka-cho, Shiroishi-shi).]
