There also was a display two suits of authentic samurai armor, video, and photographs of several famous Tohoku festivals, including the Soma Noma Oi, as well as several other fantastic objects on display, such as some banners, showing the stitching and traditional 14" width fabric, and some hand planned cabinets.
