Have Your Picture Taken in a Suit of Armor


This May “Samurai Armor Photo Studio” opened its doors in Shibuya, Tokyo. Here an assistant helps customers put on a suit of armor from the Sengoku era (15th to 16th centuries) in which they can pose for photos in front of one of studio’s five backdrops. Visitors then receive the data for the photos on an SD card. Prices start from 13,000 yen (tax included). Time required: about an hour and a half.
