Katana-Kabuto: In Japan, there is an event for boys called "Tango no sekku (Boys' Festival)". This is a traditional event for praying for boy's good luck and health. We decorate a Katana, a Yoroi (armor), a Kabuto (helmet) , etc. for this event. As you know, a Katana and a Kabuto were the Samurai's necessaries. Therefore, a Katana and a Kabuto are decorated as a symbol which protects boy's life from accidents or disaster. Oshie (Kurumie) of "Katana-Kabuto" is a good gift as the birthday gifts for boys.
