Product Description

The original armored doll “Date Masamune: Samurai Rider” has appeared!

Born from collaboration with SUZUKINE YUZAN in 2004, no one but Ichizo can produce such a simple, yet modern and fashionable doll.

This is a replica of the armor which the legendary samurai Date Masamune wore, including his helmet with a horn in the image of a crescent moon to provoke interest to the doll.

The authenticity of Ichizo is expressed through the details such as the realness of the face and the flexible joints.


The armor itself is produced by YUZAN SUZUKINE , a popular 4th generation Japanese armorsmith.

This fantastic armor is real and handmade just like any armor displayed in the studio of YUZAN SUZUKINE.

This style of armor was destined for the realistic design of the ICHIZO doll. All ICHIZO dolls are crafted, painted, and detailed by hand with no printing or machinery. Therefore each doll has no copy, making all of them truly special.

For example, the doll’s eyes are carefully drawn on, using a blend of six colors. In this way, the doll’s gentle expression is expressed as if it were a real child. The fingers of the hands and the structure of the foot are the fruit of detailed craftsmanship.

Additionally, you can move the joints of the head, arms, and waist freely allowing you to display it in any pose.

Furthermore, the motorbike prepared for the ICHIZO doll is an incredible work of art. The bike itself is an original design, crafted from the same materials and methods as the armor itself.

In Japan, ICHIZO dolls are highly evaluated as an excellent piece of art. Adhering to its’ hand-drawn and finishing techniques, this doll would make a fine addition to any collection.
