Wonderful time spent. The staff was very informative and friendly.

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.

Its a little hard to find the right building, but it was definitely worth it. The dress up was really funny
and we enjoyed it very much.
