  • Had a street photo shooting session with a friend. Everything was really nice: friendly personnel, great armor and really cool photos. Now I can finally change my facebook avatar. Totally worth it.  more »

  • What a great place !! We had a bunch of fun !! Highly recommended.
  • Went here on my first trip to Japan. It was one of the most fun experience during my trip. Not only to wear a samurai armour but also their guidance and the history lesson. The owner and his colleague were very funny also which made it easier for someone who is not use to be upfront a camera. It's a must go place! Thank you so much for a fun time. Tack så mycket (Swedish for - Arigatou gozaimasu) Kind regards Andreaa
  • I’ve seen many things during my trip in Japan but my recent experience at Samurai Armor Photo Studio was something I’ll never forget!!! Was one of the best days of my life. Wear a real samurai armor and having a professional photographer doing a whole photoshoot is a must! And last but not least Takemura San directing every pose and explaining every item and history was a real honor! I’ll sure comeback and try Sanada Yukimura’s armor!
  • Well, its exactly what you would expect, which in this case is absolutely a good thing. If you think the experience of wearing traditional Japanese armor is worth the cost, it will be.
  • Excellent! Fully recommended! A must!
