      Date-tono,
      The word you are looking for is "mukabaki."
      There is a great picture at the following website:
      http://www.iz2.or.jp/english/fukusyoku/busou11/index.htm
      [The samurai also wears a cover of deer's summer skin called
      "mukabaki."] They appear to have their own himo as haidate, and
      similar fasteners on the leg right above the knee. One of my
      books by professor Turnbull shows the reverse side appearing
      as tanned leather.
      I hope this aids your research. Best wishes to most
      honorable fire squire,

      Yoshitomi Toshio, etc.
      Squire and Apprentice to only the best.
