Glimpses of the immortal samurai spirit

The classic Japanese warrior lives on.

When you think of samurai, you think of the mighty katana, whooshing through the air, cutting swiftly and without fail or falter. But there are other things in the samurai arsenal: armor, helmets, short swords, even bows and arrows.

At the Spirit of Budo: The History of Japan’s Martial Arts exhibit, take a look at the weapons and wearables of an age that’s gone but not forgotten.
