Examples of "kyahan"
Kyahan were worn as padding underneath the samurai greaves (suneate). Some types of kyahan could be covered with mail armour (kusari kyahan or kyahan suneate), these were worn by foot soldiers "ashigaru" or by samurai as protection. Kyahan were worn by ordinary travelers as protection from cold, insects and underbrush. Kyahan are often made of linen, but other materials such as cotton can be employed. Kyahan components depend on the season. When tying kyahan, the inner cords are shorter than the outer ones; it is also advisable that the cords are tied on the inner side of the legs instead of on the front or outer area. This helps prevent discomfort when the stiff greaves are placed over the kyahan.
In the fore- and mid-ground of the scene, three travellers, two adult males and one youth, walk along a path in the countryside against the backdrop of a waterfall. The men wear "waraji" straw sandals, "kyahan" leggings, swords, and their kimono arranged such that the hems graze their calves in the style of Edo period travellers. All three figures wear variations of "eboshi" hats and light blue kimono; however each garment bears a different motif. In addition, each figure is carrying something. The boy carries a closed "ōgi" folding fan, the central figure carries the boy on his shoulder, and the figure in the foreground carries a small drum in his left hand and a large white bundle in his right.
