is the Japanese craft of lacquering tanned deer leather with artistic patterns. Hundreds of years ago Samurai used Inden as part of their armor because of its strength and durability. The production of Inden
for use in samurai armor was born in Koshu, and remains there to this day.

The sakura (cherry blossom) design symbolizes new beginnings, innocence, and humility. Samurais admired the cherry blossoms because of their short yet beautiful lives. In Japanese culture the sakura blossom is a representation of mortality, a reminder that one should live their life well for it could end as swiftly and unexpectedly as that of a cherry blossom.
