Mainichi article on discovery of 6th century bone armor

Pretty interesting discovery, as it is the first time this has been found in Japan. The Korean link is not surprising. I'll need to dig into this a little bit more to see if there is more info on either this find or the Korean stuff. I assume it is keikou style armor, given that it is talking about scales and the 6th century provenance (and I can't see how bone tankou would work). I would also be interested to see how it survived compared to metal examples from the same period.
