This project documents our research into the arms and armor of Japan between antiquity and the nineteenth century, as well as the Japanese military tactics of that period. It also provides an overview of Japanese history as context for this information. Photographic and written documentation of the Higgins Armory Museum's collection of about 300 pieces of Japanese arms and armor are also provided. These aspects of the project were combined to create a web-based virtual exhibit as a final product.
