Comment The samurai depicted on the noboribata represent mythical warriors from the era of Japan's Warring States Period (1450 ~ 1600), a time of relentless political and military upheaval between powerful competing warlords. Warriors of the period gained mythical stature for demonstrating fearlessness, strength, and loyalty. These semi-historical figures were reproduced on Boy's Day noboribata in hope of inspiring the the same admirable qualities in the child.
