Incoming: Asmus Toys 1/6th scale Musashi's Wafuku i.e. Japanese traditional clothing

In modern Japan you have western clothing (yofuku), and Japanese clothing (wafuku). The various traditional ethnic garments worn in Japan are still in use, they are mainly worn for ceremonies and special occasions - like weddings, funerals, coming-of-age ceremonies (seijin shiki), and festivals.

This Asmus Toys 1/6th scale Musashi's Wafuku set will include: One ocean blue robe, One under gown (Nagajuban), One pair of Samurai paints, One pair Japanese Sandals, One wooden sword and One deep blue traditional belt (Obi). NOTE: This is just the clothing set, NO 12-inch figure is included, hence the weird looking 1/6th scale head sculpt.

Miyamoto Musashi (宮本 武蔵, c. 1584 – June 13, 1645), also known as Shinmen Takezō, Miyamoto Bennosuke or, by his Buddhist name, Niten Dōraku, was a Japanese swordsman and rōnin. Musashi, as he was often simply known, became renowned through stories of his excellent swordsmanship in numerous duels, even from a very young age.
