Samurai Art: Takeda Shingen

Takeda Shingen Portrait

Takeda Shingen is a well-known medieval samurai warlord.

Takeda Shingen was one of the preeminent daimyo (feudal lords) with exceptional military prestige, who sought to take control of Japan in the late stage of the Sengoku period ("Warring States" period).
Takeda Shingen's most famous suit of armor included the white Yak-haired helmet with beaten gold Shikami headerboard; this armor is said the most gorgeous one in the Japan's samurai armor history.
Takeda is especially well known for his series of battles (1553–64) with the noted warrior Uesugi Kenshin, which not only are famous in the annals of Japanese history but are also much celebrated in Japanese drama and folklore.

Silent as a Forest
Fierce as Fire

I will not get lost...
The North Star is shining in the darkness...
The road to Valhalla, straight like a sword, is always in front of me!
