Bottle Covers for Men

Good morning everyone,

How's your Silver Week going so far? Mine is starting out slow as I don't plan on leaving my apartment today (other than going for a run). It's still looking like the whole week is going to be great-sunny skies, highs in the high 20s and nothing to do! Sounds like a perfect week to me!

Maybe I'll swing by Hiroshima Castle, I love checking out the old armour worn by samurai during their heyday. If I were rich, I'd buy a set. How about you? Have you ever wished you could afford to have a samurai's armour of your own?

Well now there’s a range of samurai armour you can take home with you, and despite their petite size, they’re actually faithful recreations of suits worn by famous warriors in Japanese history.

Certified by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as a “Wonder 500” product, awarded to 500 of Japan’s finest goods, foods and travel experiences, this unique range of warrior suits can either dress up your figurines or safeguard your favourite bottle of sake, wine or shochu.

Designed to fit over 900-millilitre (35-ounce) sake (Japanese rice wine) and shochu (Japanese distilled liquor) bottles, the Samurai Armour Bottle Cover range also works perfectly for 750-millilitre (25-ounce) wine bottles.

▼ Clockwise from top left: Date Masumune (Y7,020), Toyotomi Hideyoshi (Y8,100), Mouri Motonari (Y7,560), Takeda Shingen (Y8,100) and Sanada Yukimura (Y7,020).


While each of the characters in the series has an interesting history, you might want to keep an extra-sharp eye on Sanada Yukimura (whose armour appears bottom-left, above) as he will be the star of NHK’s year-long Taiga drama series in 2016.

▼ Two of the most spectacular in the range: the gold Tokugawa Ieyasu and the silver Oda Nobunaga both retail for Y10,260 each .


The collection has received a huge response from people who are eager to get their hands on the well-made suits of armour.

With such a variety of characters and elaborate helmet crests, I'm having a hard time choosing just one. Which one do you think I should buy?


Actually, these will make great souvenirs for my friends the next time I go home!

Have a great day!
