shop#109 Sengoku Dama

Who is your favorite commander in Sengoku Era? Takeda Shingen? Oda Nobunaga? My favorite is Date Masamune, who was a commander ruled around Tohoku 450 years ago. It is said that Darth Vader was designed affected by Date Masamune's black armor.

In this shop, you can find accessories and stationery which have heraldic emblems of these commanders.
