History: Hiroshima established a professional baseball team as part of the city's reconstruction efforts after the atomic bomb devastation in 1945. The Carp ("Koi" in Japanese) were perennially underfunded, and were so poor that in 1953 they could only afford to issue one uniform per player. The Carp played in Hiroshima Municipal Stadium until 2008.

Absolutely love the caps. They have a perfect fit for me who's always struggling finding good fitting baseball caps. The quality is definitely there in every little detail. I absolutely love the green satin under the visor. Even the packaging is perfect, with a lovely wrapping paper. Definitely deserve the five stars!
The importance of the Carp to rebuilding Hiroshima cannot be understated. The quality and beauty of this cap is a beautiful way to memorialize this history.
This is the nicest and most comfortable baseball cap I’ve ever worn! Delivered promptly and as expected. Great experience!
Love the hat, it's exactly as pictured. The quality is exceptionally high, but like all old hats, it sits kind of high on my head. Wish it was a bit deeper, but that's more of a defect in my massive dome than the hat.
Gorgeous cap in person. One of the most beautiful I've seen. Gave it to my nephew for his birthday and he was stoked!
