Shinpai Deshou, one of my favorite blogs (and one where I sometimes guest post), informs us today that one of Hideyoshi's jinbaori (surcoats), made from a Persian tapestry - yes, an actual textile thing from all the way over in Safavid Persia - will be on display at Kodai-ji in Kyoto from July 20 until Aug 3.

Further links and info here:

Kodai-ji seems a pretty cool place to visit anyway, as the S-A Wiki article by our very own Shogun says that it was founded by Nene (Hideyoshi's widow), and is the site of Hideyoshi's and Nene's graves. How did I miss that when I was in Kyoto!? Oh well, time to go back, I guess.

I heard that the restoration took two years or so. John
