Japan Militaria


Many of the items shown on this page came from several very large estate collections of Imperial Japanese militaria, collected over many years. One collection included at least one example of every Japanese order and medal and ribbons, rank and branch insignia, qualification badges, metal and cloth insignia, and several complete uniforms. Many of the items had examples of variants, and some items had more than one example. Most of the orders and medals were sold over the years, however, there are a number of items remaining. We will list them as time permits.


If you see an item you want, please note the ITEM NUMBER and NAME and use it in your email.

JAPAIR-1 German World War Two Japanese Emperor HIROHITO Gold Opera Style Cuff Links presented by Adolf Hitler 27.9.1940


This is a 1/2 x 3/4 oval matched pair of cufflinks presented as abovementioned. They feature HIROHITO's signature in Kanji on each with the presentation information on each of the reverse.

They came to me many years ago when I acquired a collection of militaria that had belonged to one of General of the Army  Mac Arthur staff officers. The back story according to Albert Speer is that this was an idea of von Ribbontrop's to give the Japanese emperor a small gift. A similar was also given to TOJO.

The condition is worn and near excellent. A COA will be given to the next owner.

Early Japanese Matchlock Rifle


This is a very finely crafted Imperial Japanese feudal era Samurai matchlock rifle.

This rifled is smooth bore (approximately .50 caliber or 13.5mm bore).  The rifle measures 48 inches overall with a 35-1/2 inch barrel.  The stock is fashioned from three pieces of dark hardwood inlaid and embellished with brass ornamentation. The rear part of the stock behind the brass band is a single piece and the forearm is made of two pieces assembled to hold the iron barrel. The rod is no longer present. There is a 3 inch hairline crack in the stock just forward of the action  One of the brass chrysanthemums is missing on the stock.

Close-up views of the right and left sides of the stock including the action and embellishments are shown below.

This is a view of what appears to be a kaga-mon family crest of the Hiratsuka Tamehiro feudal family, the mon set into the top of the stock just to the rear of the action.  There is a stylized cat (tiger) inlaid into the right side of the stock and a plum blossom on the opposite side.

These are some views of various portions and overall views of the rifle.

This is a fairly rare opportunity to acquire a scarce Japanese matchlock rifle and you will be pleased to add it to your collection!

Japanese Oni Temple Guardian with Ken Blade

An Original and Authentic 14th Century Japanese Oni Temple Guardian

This is an intricate and unusual piece.

This is one of several I have owned over many years of collecting, and it is one of the finest examples of oni art I have encountered.

These carved demons pre-date the 9th century AD when they originally held the very-highly prized ancient ken blades.

This is a later period oni, dating to the 14th or 15th century. It was perhaps used to house an old ken blade at some point in the past, however, the ken blade that is in it now dates to a later period.

The blade is signed on the tang as shown here:

The blade is a diamond-shaped cross-section double-edged straight ken blade and it is shown full-length front and back here:

The handle of the blade forms the topknot of this exquisitely carved and painted oni. It is shown disassembled here:

One measure of an oni's power and effectiveness is supposed to be gauged by the number of fingers and toes the bea st has. This one is a fairly powerful oni, with a full compliment of 4 toes on each foot, and three fingers on each hand.

The condition is quite good considering the extreme age of this item. There are some signs of wear apparent as can be clearly seen in the close-up detailed images. There are minor nicks, chips, worn paint and other cosmetic detail type of damage. One ivory fang appears to have been replaced many years ago, appearing a bit whiter than the other.

Specifications:

  • Overall Length: 51.5 cm

  • Length of handle: 9 cm

  • Length of body (less handle):42.5 cm

  • Width of body at the widest point: 8.5 cm

  • Width of body at the narrowest point: 3.5 cm

I don't believe its from a period paper (can't read Japanese) but it looks like there is some kind of article in it that perhaps the owner had some kind of connection to.  I can see a photo of a warship on one side

WWII Japanese Portable Signal Lamp Set

This is a World War II Japanese Handheld Signaling Lamp Set, circa 1940.

There is some speculation that this device was part of the T94 series radio set. It seems unlikely, as it is a signaling device that is standalone and portable. Period references we have located describing signal lamps do not make a direct association with the radio equipment.

The lamp has a three-part filter with red, amber, and green colors selectable by rotating the aluminum head. The lap is housed in a Bakelite case about 3 inches long.

It measures 2 inches deep by 5 inches wide by 5 inches high.  It has a hand crank for a self-contained spring generator on the front and loops for a strap on the back. This is a view of the top showing the complete set of accessories and field tools.

The condition is excellent throughout.
