The Higo Koshirae is made by Hosokawa Sansai, the feudal lord of the Higo province, todays Kumamoto Prefecture. He designed this Iaito as the practical combination of the of Iai, the art of drawing one's sword and the Sado, the Way of Tea. It is a solid Iaito. The short 2.2 Shaku types were used more often, and also the grip was short. It was made to use it by one hand which made it longer than hitting the enemy by holding it with two hands. Compared to the Edohigo Koshirae, which were more commen at the end of the Bakumatsu (The end of the shogunate), it is a bit different.

Like every Iaito produced by Minosaka, this Iaito has been crafted in Gifu.
