Several prominent authors has stated in their various books that Japanese tatami type armor was used in pre Edo period Japan. As far as I can tell, not one of these authors have provided any proof that tatami armor was used before the Edo period. Below are screenshots from other forum discussions showing the historian / author Anthony Bryant and Royal Armouries curator / author Ian Bottomley stating what they know about the use of tatami armour in pre Edo period Japan
Anthony Bryant (aka Effingham) discussing his knowledge of tatami armor (Armour Archives forum).
Ian Bottomley discussing his knowledge of pre Edo period tatami armor (Samurai Armor forum).
