What to expect
Find your way to the photo studio, located about ten minutes walking distance from Shibuya Station. After greeting the friendly staff, spend some time perusing the costume selections. Choose your favorite from seven different kacchu, or traditional samurai armor. Look through the various colors and styles, some paying homage to famous samurai warriors such as Date Masamune.  Once you make your selection, the staff will help you slip on the hakama and kosode (the underlayer) before donning the heavy armor. As you transform into a warrior, hear some of the history of the tradition, the armor, and famous Japanese samurai. Pose for the professional photographer as you wield a traditional spear or sword and imagine you are a fierce warrior fighting for your family and your country. Move through about 10 poses, resulting in approximately 150 images. At the end of the session, take home your favorites on an SD card.

Unforgettable Tokyo Experience!
Oct 2019
One of my favorite experiences in Japan! The whole photoshoot is a lifetime memory. The hosts were very hospitable and I felt welcomed as a tourist in Tokyo. They explain the history of each armor set and then explain each item that was dressed on me. They take a lot of photos during the shoot and they all turned out awesome! I am very happy that I was able to do this during my trip. I hope they are doing well during these times of the COVID-19 and travel restrictions.

Becoming as a Samurai at it's finest!!!!
Nov 2019
I've finally gotten the opportunity on how to feel and become as Samurai. The experience was outstanding and all the armors are very realistically detailed from up close. Both Takemura-san and the photographer-san have done their roles really well especially Takemura-san making the experience very entertaining. I'm glad that I met another person that likes G-Gundam. I would recommend this attraction for anyone that dreamed of becoming as a Samurai. 本当に素晴らしい体験!!!!

Unique experience
Oct 2019
This experience was certainly a highlight of my trip. There was some explanation of the different armor and their history as well as weapons. Of couse there was the actual dress up part and photoshoot. Takemura-san and the photographer (sorry didn't get name) were great to work with, happy and enthusiastic. Haven't seen the photos on the card yet because I have no way to view them until I get home. All in all a very interesting, enjoyable and unique experience. Highly recommend. Just remember to suck in your gut!

Brilliant - Highly recommended
Sep 2019
I was greeted with infectious energy by Takemura & had a great time with him & the team from beginning to end.
Some history of each of the Samurai who's armour make up the selection, an informative and interesting process of the armour being put on, & great experience to wear the armour (a wonderful piece of craftsmanship) & a lot fun and lots of laughs in the shoot too.
A load of great photos on an SD card to take away & nothing but good memories - Arigatogozaimas!!!

Amazing Samurai Experience
Aug 2019 • Solo
I went to the photo studio with my father and sister, but I was the only one who dressed up. Since the begging, the manager, Takemura-san was really kind with us and he explained a lot of interesting things about the samurais and the armours. We all had a really good time there thanks to him,he is really funny and he loves his job and that's a point. The photos were really cool. If you go to Tokyo, and you like samurais you must visit this place!
