How common are discoveries like this? Obviously you would expect that most of Japans older artifacts (such as samurai armor and weapons) have either been past down through family lines or lost.

I think it's not so common.
Such valuable armors were already donated to museums or sold to collectors.
I am sure some major clans' descendants keep their armors.
But some(most of?) descendants didn't understand its value.(or maybe they had to sell them for living)
Descendants of famous Shinsengumi sword masters-Okita Souji, Saito Hajime, Nagakura Shinpachi don't have their swords now.

2 armors have Kuchiki clan kamon. Kuchiki clan was the master of Fukuchiyama han. 2 other armors have unknown kamon and there are "Presented by Shiomi Sahei" on the back side of Do.
There used to be a range of horse riding and samurai were sent from Fukuchiyama castle to guard the shrine.

Secret cannon factory in Saga(Nabeshima han).
http://www.nishinippon.co.jp/nnp/culture/20061014/20061014_002.shtml

The remains of an Bakumatsu structure discovered in Saga.
Nabeshima han was known for producing Western cannons.
But the remains are in the middle of mountain.
So the factory was secret from Edo Bakufu.

Shimonoseki was a part of Choshu in Edo period and they were enemy of Aizu in Boshin war.(1868)
The PR staffs performed reenactment of Musashi-Kojiro duel in Aizu Wakamatsu city.

Kyoto is going to host the Shinsengumi lecture on internet.
But only northern Kyoto residents can participate. Sad

This isn't Bakumatsu but quite funny.
The mayors of Iga-city and Koga-city will have Shuriken match in next month.
Both cities are famous for their history of Ninja.

Shizuoka residents confused that the Shimizu family was taken over by Yamaguchi-gumi(Yakuza).
http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20070308-00000022-maip-soci

Shimizu Jirocho who was yakuza in Bakumatsu has been local hero.
Unlike modern Yakuza, Jirocho took care of poor people.
During the Boshin war, he buried bodies of Bakufu samurai which were left on the Suruga bay.
Burial of bakufu samurai wasn't permitted at the time.

And the Yamaguchi-gumi is the worst kind of people.
They do anything bad for money.

I met one - or I should say he introduced himself to me. He seemed like a nice guy, despite being drunk at 9am...

PM Abe visited Aizu to support a candidate of LDP.
He first apologized over Boshin War.
Abe was from Yamaguchi(Choshu).
http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20070415-00000008-khk-l07

But the Abe family's roots were Iwate.(Oshu)
They are descendants of Abe no Muneto.
