Jingasa.





































Jingasa were used by samurai and sometimes matchlock soldiers, mostly during the mid to late Edo period (1700-1860) The word "Gasa" meaning hat and "Jin" military. As the Edo period was a period of peace, Kabuto were used less and Jingasa became more popular.
The function of the Jingasa was still the same as for Kabuto, but with less accent on protection against arrow or sword, but from rain or sunshine, and to give an accent on the other aspects of "Samurai's daily life in times of peace" like: Police duty, Hunting, Riding etc. next to showing the Samurai's social status.
