Nice Ichimonji jingasa samurai hat with Oda Nobunaga samurai clan crests - Japan - 19th century
I put on auction a nice ichimonji jingasa, ichimonji means "one crest symbol" and represents a samurai clan. The jingasa (lit. "camp hat") was a type of hat worn by Japanese warriors when traveling or encamped.
The crests represents a melon flower and is linked with the samurai clan of Oda Nobunaga (1534 – 1582) a powerful daimyō (feudal lord) of Japan in the late 16th century who attempted to unify Japan during the late Sengoku period, and successfully gained control over most of Honshu. Nobunaga is regarded as one of three unifiers of Japan along with his retainers Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu.
The Oda clan (織田氏 Oda-shi) was a family of Japanese daimyōs who were to become an important political force in the unification of Japan in the mid-16th century. Several branches of the family continued as daimyō houses until the Meiji Restoration in 1868.
