there weren't many changes in styles, in men's fashions anyway. It is
rather hard to document the kamishimo to SCA period - as in right post
period but no records (available) to show it was *in* period.
I can't speak to how good this series is in accurcy and historicity, but
the tale of the 47 Ronin is a national, heroic tale, and I can't see them
going too far wrong with it.
I'm not sure, but the title may be "Men of the Genroku Era", not "Tales",
but don't quote me on that. I can't find it in the IMDB or through web
From what I remember, it is an excellent show. One of the many things that
prompted me to turn Japanese :-}
