The Early Middle Ages:The classic Japanese armour, the heavy, square, boxy suit, is now called ô-yoroi (“great armour”) although it was originally just called yoroi. with The ô-yoroi is obviously a bulky and heavy armour with four kusazuri (skirts). It was also expensive. For retainers and lesser warriors, the dô maru and haramaki were developed. These armours had more skirt plates and fitted closer to the body, omitting the need for a waidate. The dô-maru opens under the right arm; the haramaki opens at the back.
