Camp hat (jingasa) used by soldiers. The hat is in the shape of a low, rounded cone with a circular rim which is turned up slightly in the front. The exterior surface is coated in animal fur, most likely bear fur. The underside of the brim is coated in black lacquer and the rest of the interior is painted in red lacquer. The front of the hat is adorned with a large, brass disc. The back of the hat has a small ring designed to hold an adornment or banner. A five-stage metal fixture (tehen-no-kanamono) sits atop the hat, each layer designed to look like chrysanthemum petals. The tan hat lining (ukebari) is intact.
