  • This is a truly magical place! Takemura is the best! His super friendly demeanor and genuine enthusiasm really take the photo experience to the next level. High quality photos and high quality service. If you're in Tokyo, you need to put this on your to-do list.
  • Go! It’s a must! These guys are professional and you will have an experience of a lifetime. You won’t regret it 🤙
  • Had a lot of fun here being dressed in Samurai gear and having photos taken while also learning about the life of Samurai.
  • Great staff that was very enthusiastic about what they do. You get to wear your choice of very well done replica samurai armor and take pictures. The owner (Takemura-san) teaches about the history of the armor and teaches a little Japanese while he helps you through the process. Then you take around 150 pics and they give you an SD card to take with you. The pictures turned out wonderful! 10/10 would recommend
  • One of the greatest cultural experiences I experienced in Tokyo, I highly recommend this for anyone who has an interest in Samurai.
