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.

We had a fantastic time with Takemura and the team at the Samurai Armor photo studio. We were really looked after during the session and not only with customer service but the enthusiasm and energy that team put in to the experiance was so energising. The experiance was made even more special by the excitement that Takemura created through his knowledge and explanation of all things to do with the armor, whether it was about the pieces or the history around them and the Samurai who wore them. A great experiance, team and a must if you are in Tokyo.
