If The Shoguns Were Alive Today, Which Would Be Their Favorites?

Softbank Mobile released new five line-ups of luxury-textured and japan-lacquered covercase for iPhone 3GS/3G, which imitate an “inro” or a feudal pillbox used in Japan’s turbulent age.  The list price is JPY 99,800 for each, which is approximately USD 1,050.

The line-ups were designed on the concept of what kind of iPhone case the five shoguns would want if they had their own iPhone in their age, and a Kyoto-based 300-year-old japan lacquer craftshop completed the state-of-the-art items for Japanese antique lovers.   A historian’s guide to the Shoguns are also attached to all products.   Available only at SoftBank Mobile’s online shop[J].
