Find your way to the photo studio, located about 10 minutes' walking distance from Shibuya Station.
After greeting the friendly staff, spend some time perusing the costume selections. Choose your favorite from 7 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.
Spend 45 minutes posing for the professional photographer. As you wield a traditional spear or sword, imagine you are a fierce warrior fighting for your family and your country. Move through about 10 poses, resulting in approximately 150 images. At the end of the session, take home your favorites on an SD card.
