T-SHIRT HONCHO BUYU KAGAMI TAIRANO TOMOMORI
Tairano Tomomori (1152-1185) was a general of Samurai of Taira family. He was the forth son of Tairano Kiyomori. There is a famous story about the end of his life. He took command of the troops in Dan-no-ura battle which happened in 1185. This battle occurred because of the conflict between Minamoto family and Taira family. Eventually, Tomomori judged that Taira family would lose the battle and decided to suicide. He ordered court ladies of Taira family to clean ships. And he worn an armor over another not to refloat at the surface of water after diving. He didn’t want to be shamed by enemies. According to a theory, he was holding an anchor when he dove. Based on this anecdote, there are several titles of Bunraku (traditional Japanese puppet show) and Kabuki (traditional form of Japanese drama performance).
Ukiyoe is a genre of Japanese art which was established in the early Edo period. It became popular among ordinary people and advanced mainly Edo city (Tokyo Pref. today).
